GALEN TREZISE

Galen Trezise creates sculptures, video and drawings that often blur our conceptions of gender identity and representations of bodies. For Trezise, the process of making is crucial. He is interested in how materials generate meaning and how dualities emerge within his work. Motivated by invisible worlds and metaphysical concerns he will often use transparent and reflective materials with personal semiotics to represent a relationship to numinous unseen forces and what a body in all its spatial, spiritual and psychological multiplicity could look like. Galen Trezise (b. 1981) lives and works in Tucson Arizona. He is currently pursuing his MFA at the School of Art at the University of Arizona. Trezise was the recipient of best in show in a juried sculptural exhibition at Yavapai College in 2014 and artist resident at the Vermont Studio Center in 2017.
