About the Artist
The artistic practice of Trek Valdizno is prolific and is overarched by conceptual processes. Making work intuitively, and being directed by impulses toward the physicality of experimentation have never been lost to him. Aesthetically, his works become reduced to conclusive abstractions that curb both traditional craftiness and gestural maladroitness. The conditions, surrounding them, however, involve a kindred toward materiality and a gesture that brings together calculation and chance. With a highly process-oriented practice, Valdizno builds up and breaks down issues of dimensionality and the painted surface. With non-conventional painting materials and surfaces, he portrays an appreciation of space, color and natural form.
