Rene Trevino: Axial Precessions

January 29, 2014- March 8, 2014

Axial Precessions is a new series of paintings by René Treviño of round forms, including celestial bodies, cultural and art historical objects and patterns, star charts and astrological maps. There is something universal, reassuring, unifying and meditative in these mandalalike forms. Often mistaken for silk-screens or digital prints, Treviño’s work is in fact meticulously hand-painted with acrylic on Mylar. His artwork is interwoven with themes of identity, challenging traditional ideas of race and sexuality. He feels compelled to make thoughtful and beautiful work that confronts societal assumptions and gives new insight into the human experience in a personal quest for heroism, bravery, and a need to define his place in the world.
