Exploring the incredible power in pattern and variation, American painter Russell Tyler celebrates the splendor of the abstract in his works.
Ranging from pure geometric forms to the repetition of organic, amoeba-like organisms in bright pops of color, Tyler plays off of the language of twentieth-century abstraction in the expressive quality of his works. From this perspective, Tylers’ work is undeniably refreshing as it recalls a closer connection between artist and nature, a bond that can be lost in our modern digital age.
Born in Summertown, Tennessee, in 1981, Tyler earned his BFA degree from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, and his MFA degree from the Pratt Institute in New York. He has had the pleasure of his work being featured in many solo gallery exhibitions, including those at the Galerie Bernard Ceysson in France, the Gordon Gallery 2 in Tel Aviv, Israel, and the Thiery Goldburg Gallery in Los Angeles, California.
