The Wellington Gallery presents Flesh for Thought, an exhibition of hyperrealist sculptures by artist Paul Trefry.  

'Trefry sculpts the homeless, the aged, the under-aged and the bewildered. A common thread to his work is fragility:of youth or old age, or of the caprice of fate. Key to his works is frankness without condescension or melodrama. We are faced suddenly and unerringly with something that we instinctually avoid. In so doing, Trefry faces with our own frailties. His art seeks to widen the ambit of our empathy. It does not preach; rather, it operates on a far simpler human register. We will all feel approach of time, and there will always be those, even if not seen, who live in unspeakable conditions. Trefry gives the less-than-visible the dignity of an asserted presence.' Adam Geczy, Artist Profile Magazine, Issue 53, 2020
