The RCB Galleria in River City Bangkok serves as a platform for both local and international artists and exhibitors.
River City Bangkok, the capital’s antique and modern art center, is where artists and exhibitors may expose their talent and innovative works in order to get greater exposure. The RCB Galleria on the second level is 600 square meters and may be partitioned and sectioned in an unlimited number of ways to accommodate the pieces on show. The high open ceiling is painted black to draw attention away from it and to contrast with the lighting that highlights the show itself.

Misremembered but not Forgotten
In “Misremembered but not Forgotten,” the artist expresses his own warped recollections of his native Southern Louisiana using spectral shapes and flowing patterns. He investigates how we gradually become estranged from “home” and the manner in which we construct our own sense of separate identity under the overarching topic of “Remembering.” He poses the issue, “Can I explain my past using the very different language of my present?” through the use of “Architectonic” painting. A sequence of ink drawings serves as the artist’s emotional symbolism to convey the tale of the former self. The motifs in these rich ink paintings are drawn from the people and places of Louisianan upbringing. Simple twists and curves in black ink represent the Southern Magnolia tree’s large blossoms, which stand symbolically for departed loved ones. References to a large family are depicted as groups of lengthy, sluggish brushstrokes that come together to form dynamic patterns.
The artist reflects on the fallibility of memory in his paintings on canvas by using unraveling brushstrokes, ethereal forms, and stretches of thinly laid paint. He provides Explicit Memory’s hazy portions shape. You are invited to immerse yourself in the artist’s creation and reflect on your own past. Investigate the subtleties of your personal relationship to the past, the accuracy of your memory, and the challenge of paying respect to the past in a way that is true to your present.
Trey Hurst (B.1988)
Trey Hurst is a visual artist and designer who presently resides in Bangkok, Thailand. He was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His paintings are a basic and repetitive pattern-building exercise. His paintings on raw canvas and abstract ink and watercolor drawings on handmade Saa paper make up the majority of his oeuvre.
The artist divides his creations into two themes:
- Complex patterns that express his own recollections, feelings, and history are called “Memory and Place.” They depict his experience in a certain setting and period of time.
- Materials and Technique: Simple compositions and patterns created with flowing brushstrokes and repeated mark-making.
Trey obtained a Bachelor of Architecture in 2011 from The Illinois Institute of Technology before pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in 2013 at The California College of the Arts. He has returned to his love of the visual arts after working as a design researcher for tech companies and innovation consultancies. Since then, he has had two well-received solo exhibitions in Thailand and sells artwork to foreign private clientele.
Trey finds inspiration in the patterns that are constantly being created and recreated in our constructed world. His style of sketching and painting is influenced by the outlines and grids of urban infrastructure as well as the interactions between man-made buildings and the natural world. Additionally, the tradition and history of patterns in textile design have had a significant impact on his work. Specifically, the employment of woven, printed, tufted, and dyed patterns in textiles and carpets as tools for cultural identity and narrative.
