Trey Wright

Trey Wright is a Texas based photographer. He received his BFA in Photography from the University of North Texas and received further education from Collin College in Plano, Texas. Wright’s photographs are in many ways a “post” post-modern examination of the ever so well known Dada movement of the early twentieth century. After taking a break from art, he began making the series of photographs Last Day of Magic, inspired by magazines, painting, and collecting images.

Wright is the recipient of two grants from the Dallas Museum of Art. He recently held his first solo show in July 2012 and was recently selected as one of the Second Edition 2012 Hot Shots. Next month he will be part of the Second Edition Hey, Hot Shot show at Jen Bekman Gallery in New York, opening April 6, on view for two weeks. In addition, he will be participating in a pop-up show organized by artist/curator Stephanie Gonot for the Month of Photography in Los Angeles, the show is titled Wish You Were Here, opening April 25.

Wright is one of the featured artist in issue N.5 Aint-Bad Magazine and today we share photographs from his series, Last Day of Magic.

The photographs I make are a response to the visual culture around me and trying to make sense of it. I often lay the scrap photos out on the table and arrange them like specimens to be examined. I come from a background in painting and art photography and examining the minuet details of a place are particularly important to me. These cuts and pieces act out simple narratives and call into questions what entices us into the picture plane.
