Zac Trainor: Between Psyche and Matter


Zac Trainor presents a confrontation with the unconscious in an effort to capture or access a glimpse beyond the veil and into the realm of the soul. The processes taking place in our conscious and unconscious, conflicts between desire and necessity, the struggle to obtain a sense of place, and the impermanence of our existence are just some of the underlying philosophies and inspiration in the art. Trainor works with concepts and imagery that explore the alternate realities of existence. Through paintings, audio, and video, each piece brings us closer to understanding something more about the self, our surroundings, or our place in time. Each piece serves as a warning, an action, and a reflection.
