Trever Webster creates his mixed media work with a sense of immediacy and a flare for the experimental. His number and text laden patterns codify his personal tendency towards habitual repetition. Webster’s work sparks a dialogue either internally or externally as seen in his recent focus on Rorschach-style monoprints. Viewers are challenged to decode his seemingly random outbursts as well as his intricate compositions. His work is very process driven and can change directions several times during creation. The laborious patterns applied to his art are a key component to the aesthetic of of each piece. Trever also tends to be resourceful when it comes to discovering new media. The result is an eerie, atmospheric world open for interpretation.
Trever grew up in Madison WI, where he studied painting and studio art. He is a founding member of Firecracker Studios, a Madison based art co-op, and showcased his art throughout southern Wisconsin. He moved to Charleston in 2007 and has shown at Eye Level Art as well as Rick Rhodes Photography, Muddy Waters and Kulture Klash. His work has also shown in Redux Contemporary Art Center during a 2008 key holder showcase as well as Contemporary Charleston’s annual showing at the City Gallery in 2012.
