COAGH born artist Trevor J. Brown is preparing to unveil his twelfth solo exhibition on 18 October for one night only in The Merchant Hotel, Belfast.
Trevor’s creative talent knows no bounds. Growing up in the heart of County Tyrone, in his native Coagh, nestled between the Sperrins and the beautiful Lough Neagh - it is easy to see what has influenced Trevor’s works. His home town inspires every painting he creates, and is a constant appreciation of the ruralised landscape.
In the words of critic David Lennon: “His eyes have never really left rural Tyrone and the family farm on which he developed his love for nature and animals. His portrait painting and his depictions of rural life are steeped in folklore.”
Trevor concentrated his energies into his creative flare from a young age, and at the mere age of nineteen exhibited his first piece at an art gallery.
In light of this, expectations are soaring for the hugely talented artist’s forthcoming solo exhibition that has been three and a half years in the making. Entitled ‘Aviary Exotica’, this, impressively, shall be Trevor’s twelfth solo show and again he has created a multi-layered exhibition which will excite, challenge and intrigue each and every art lover. Trevor has brought together over 70 new artworks which will be shown exclusively for one night only at The Merchant Hotel, Belfast on Friday 18 October 2013 with a cocktail reception from Bottle Green.
This new exhibition actively draws in and embraces the viewer with a collection of paintings which splits distinctly into five interlinked themes or vignettes called ‘A Social Celebrity’, ‘Bestiary’, ‘Bird People’, ‘Ceremony Ware’ and ‘They Dine By Night’.
In speaking of his latest exhibition Trevor commented: “Each painting within ‘Aviary Exotica’ combines classical style with modern relevance, establishing reality within a surreal setting that incorporates twists that demand thought. I’m hoping that my passion will hold the imagination of the viewer for hours, ensuring ‘Aviary Exotica’ is remembered long after its one-night-only mayfly existence in The Merchant Hotel Belfast this autumn. I’m very proud of my Tyrone roots and hope a few local people will make the journey down to the exhibition!”
