Lucked Up: New Works By TRXTR
UK based artist TRXTR’s work explores social and moral issues and his distinctive style using a wide variety of techniques fusing together the art of photography and painting. This is not an artist who is wedded to any particular medium, but for him a rather more Machiavellian ‘ends justifies the means’
approach while acknowledging the historical importance of traditional media.TRXTR’s images are thought provoking, poignant, current and seductively captivating showing us an eclectic mix of atmospheres and emotions, as are the techniques he uses to produce them. Their overall effect is disturbing and alluring in equal measure. Concerns about exploitation, globalization and corruption appear over and over again, but the tone is ambivalent. He is not preaching to us, but reproducing some of the sickly sweet images of commercialism in a way that it is genuinely hard to tell if he is celebrating them or railing against them. This interesting and unsettling approach has something of the effect of Jeff Koons and Warhol.
