Artist Statement

My work mixes words and phrases with reappropriated vintage paint-by-numbers to create pieces with, hopefully, multiple layers of meaning. The picture plane, interrupted by the lettering, reveals the underlying architecture and the tension between the two. The genre serves as both a visual vocabulary and access point for the viewer to enter the work. I subscribe to the idea that art exists within the viewer and not in the object itself.

Trey Speegle

Using one of the world’s largest collections of vintage paint-by-number paintings, Speegle explores themes of hope, love, longing and transformation by using humor, affirmations, double entendre and word play that resonate with a broad, pop appeal. Speegle has collaborated with Stella McCartney, Squarespace and Anthropologie Home and his latest is a SS '16 clothing & accessories collection with Print all Over Me & International Playground. He divides his time between NYC’s Meatpacking District and his converted barn in the Catskill Mountains.
