Treasure Frey "Shards"

Like the Spice

poster for Treasure Frey "Shards"

This event has ended.

In this, her first solo show at Like the Spice, Treasure explores the boundaries of her paper works, offering assemblies that appear to have burst from their constraints, and then been carefully pieced back together. These little explosions form eloquent and ordered tangrams of color that simultaneously invoke destruction and creation.

Ms. Frey’s most recent body of work focuses on small slices of color, a visible translation of a specific energy. Influenced by particles, waves, atoms, and organisms, Treasure's conservation of matter forces all of these elements to act in concert, revealing formal visual decisions to form their own microcosms, macrocosms. In these obssessionalist collages Treasure considers, cuts, lays her gouache and acrylic, tapes, and then begins again; her process is a cycle in which the critical mass occurs again. Each singular unit of her energy and color act together to form a machine which, when whole, commands a greater and more powerful place than before.
