Trena J Myers is an intuitive abstract artist and creative photographer. Trena loves many forms of art and thinks creatively. She has designed advertisements, clothing lines, greeting cards and various gifts. No job is too small. Her first mural design was when she was selected to design and paint her 7th grade cafeteria wall in Enterprise, AL. Trena is an artist who works in a variety of media. By replaying the work for each exhibition and pushing the evocative power of the work a little further, Myers creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. Her artworks are characterized by the use of everyday objects in an atmosphere of middle-class mentality in which recognition plays an important role. By applying abstraction, she often creates work using creative game tactics, but these are never permissive. Play is a serious matter: during the game, different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday objects undergo transubstantiation. Her works are presented with the aim not to provide an idealistic view but to identify where light and the environment are important. The energy of a place and its emotional and spiritual vibrations are always important. By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of middle-class values, she tries to focus on the activity of presenting. The character, shape or content of the presented artwork is secondary. The essential things are the momentary and the intention of presenting. Her works don't reference recognizable forms. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Trena has over 20 years of experience with art design and sales. She is an Amazon published Author and Illustrator. Trena Myers currently lives and works in Metro Atlanta, Georgia.
