Trey Wright: The Art of Consumption

Dallas, Texas based artist Trey Wright highlights how we experience images today, with overflown social media feeds and bulky fashion magazines we judge quickly and are attracted to bright and vivid imagery. Wright refers to the consumerist culture cravings by staging physical mise en scène, where flat cut-out images of goods from fashion and lifestyle magazines become new ‘objects of desire’. He plays with larger-then-life prints, sizes, angles and positions of ‘objects’ within each staged image and achieves a humorous yet bizarre outcome, balancing on the border of advertisement and surrealism.
