It’s clear when an illustrator has got something going on when they have a carrion plant (a tropical flower that gives off a smell of rotting meat to attract filthy flies and insects) just plopped right in the middle of a collection of images that are otherwise filled with swimming pools, ponytails and cacti.
Trey Wright, from Dallas, creates images ranging from chaotic forest paintings to Hockney-inspired collages – all infused with an element of fauna in some shape or form. We could, technically, draw some cheesy comparison between his work and the carrion plant featured in a few of his pictures, and how its bright colours drew us in like the rotting flesh-obsessed flies that we are, but that would be silly. And, let’s be honest, the only stench coming off Trey’s work is that of wonder and joy.
