Jerôme Oudot Trëz


The painting conceived by Trez is deeply interesting with a pronounced and unique expressiveness. Grotesque beings share embryonic and umbilical traits. Figures glance without expression, holding emptiness filled with pain. Impoverished princes agonizing in a slow decay. A pain that sprouts from within and projects itself into space, howling a mute yet deafening scream. Skeletal characters shriek from their entrails and turn them inside out.

Geometric shapes are born from parts of the whole figure, with an incomplete modelling which unveils its basic structure and building process. The uncovering of its skeleton provides an X-ray vision, through which we can catch both the outer expression and its inner map; in a homogeneous amalgamation, in a convoluted mishmash of transparencies and opacities.

The heads and limbs, which are refracted in organic planes, unfold and merge themselves with the background. In his painting, we assist to a gradual transformation of one plane into another, from one shape to others, from a being into something else, all in permanent metamorphosis.

The formation and the deformation that takes us to the most engrained feelings, a transfiguration of a form that is more or less human. The continuous change of character, of condition or state, gets strongly reflected on the appearance; a transmutation that is as physical as it is moral.

The lack of colours emphasise its melancholy and puts the spotlight on the textures, giving it an enhanced plasticity on a heavily structural and homogenous interdependence. There is something withered, petrified, half-human-half-corpse, just like a breakable mummy that challenges time in an eternal agony.

Over the course of his work, Trez portrays a transformation of the individual, as if he was painting with time, in permament mutation.

By Pedro Boaventura • Excerpt from Masters of Painting - Volume 1

Trëz Orb is a French artist from Paris. By using various tools of creation (photography, painting, sculpture, video...), he wonders about mankind. Body and mind are his fields of analysis. His work exposes his own world view and the human, as it appears to him. This is for him to find his place among this chaotic structure that he does not understand.

Creation is the only way for him to know who he is. Trëz is a member of the Oxyum Art Collective and of the Octopulse Collective. He is also a resident artist of La Cave Show Room Gallery. He ready had the chance to participating in great exhibitions (in France, United States, Belgium, Spain...) with a lot of amazing artists like H.R. Giger, Olivier de Sagazan, Bruce D. Mitchell, Seth Siro Anton, Yoann Penard and many more.
