Sexuality, identity, and border transgressions are recurring subjects in Tremlett’s artistic work. However, the focus in his new works has shifted towards a subtly charged object-subject relationship.
The consciously chosen self-referentiality inherent in his artwork and exhibition title’s, oscillates between a wink and an abyss that is also intrinsic to the work, whose tension can discharge in an explosion of dysfunctionality and insecurity, despite the beauty and sensuality which the beholder initially discerns. Tremlett here plays with different expectations, traditions, and possibilities of figurative painting and drawing.
