Trey Rozell

Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Painting and Drawing

Trey Rozell is an artist from the American South who is currently living and working out of Chicago, IL. His practice is firmly rooted in painting, but extends into sculpture, performance, installation, and animation. His work is made considering the perpetuated structures embedded within the history of painting. The work utilizes absurdity, repetition, and gamesmanship as a means of inquiry into these age-old subjects with the hope to observe how the rhetoric of painting continues to survive and evolve today. Trey has had work exhibited in the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, a solo exhibition at The End Project Space, has exhibited internationally at the Ionian Center for the Arts and Culture in Kefalonia, GD and is currently pursuing his MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
