Teo Treloar’s intensely thought provoking work refuses to shy away from uncertainty, giving voice to duality, vulnerability and fragility. Notions of isolation, and tension recur in Treloar’s work, slowly teased out in his quiet yet intense images; in the faceless man that appears and reappears, busily engaged in cryptic activities. The subjects struggle and strive to see clearly and to make sense of their worlds. Bombarded by the slew of influences, information and images that surround us, they seek to understand, unveil and organize their surrounds. Like the figures in the works, viewers’ efforts to find meaning and certainty are toyed with but quickly frustrated.
