Studio Art Senior Seminar presents

Visiting Artist: Nicola Tyson 

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

[Visiting Artist: Nicola Tyson ] "Couple", 2011, Oil on canvas, 81 x 72"
"Couple", 2011, Oil on canvas, 81 x 72"
Nicola Tyson's large-scale painting, "Couple," depicts two figures locked in a separate but tense relationship to one another. Each figure is rendered in the artist's chromatically intense palette and commands its space within the canvas frame. The figures are both animated and permanently fixed by the painted surface—a trick that only paintings can readily perform. These figurative "characters" present strange physical amalgams and morphological complexities that describe an anarchic freedom rather than violence, genetic engineering, or alienation. Bizarre yet strangely credible, these characters originate from fertile but exiled parts of what we might inadequately term the "subconscious" or "imagination"—some place in the complex space of the mind, beyond the reassuring confines of "reason."
EVERYONE WELCOME!
