About the Artist,
Trea Christopher Grey
As a self taught painter, the spirit that guides and propels my work begins in unconstrained play.In the transparency of water, rich and vivid colors flow. In the beginning there is a splash, a spill,an impulsive spray that draws me in. I respond to the unfolding mystery, following the new and surprising worlds that spontaneously take form.
I look for dimensionality in relationships. Free flowing lines and organic shapes emerge—there is no such thing in my paintings (or in my life) as rigid boundaries. With spirited movement, the senses are heightened and freed from habitual ways of seeing. Perspective and distance become subjective and the imagination is lifted into an infinite space, exploring who we are now and who we can become.
In making color choices I rely upon a mood or vision that expresses itself clearly in the moment.I listen and feel deeply for beauty that comes through the heart until all doubt falls away. In shaping poetry and questions, I look to expand our notion of what is possible.
I see my life and this art as a process for unfolding grace. Through the creative process, my free child awakens and wisdom is engaged. It is in this sacred relationship—a relationship of wonder and innocence—where I draw my power to create. For over twenty years, the joy of expressing unity through painting has enabled me to both experience and share a profound and rewarding adventure.
“Feeling the formless, tapping the infinite — that’s where the joy is.”
Feeding the soul of creativity
I still myself
Listening for a majesty that emerges through dreams
In gardens flowing through the heart
Metaphors awaken the senses
Whispering new creative sensibilities
Brilliant, rich and engaging worlds
Portals of permission
The energy is alive
And speaks of elevated potential
Saturated in spirit
The depths of consciousness are stirred
And my body moves in relation to this etheric realm
The brush expresses freely
For me, painting is a natural, organic expression of awe and wonder. My vision is to fully integrate and share clearly this beauty and love.
