TALENTE’15 Nominees

Eyeballs by Trey Wright

The jewellery of this year’s Talente Award reminds Dallas-based photographer Trey Wright of surrealist artist Méret Oppenheim and her fondness of distorting items around her home – simple objects, embedded with new meaning by her clever pairings and use of texture.

Trey, known for creating surreal images using cutouts from fashion magazines in combination with three-dimensional objects, similarly treated each jewellery piece like they were different characters,
interacting with a set of fellow strange characters and amorphous, colored shapes.
He comments: ‘Lines twist and turn like tentacles across acid green waves. Eyes roll around beads over crimson spots. Chain links dissolve into trails of golden dust.’
