KEITH TYSON

KEITH TYSON

opere

Keith Tyson, nato a Ulverston nel 1969, “mappa” la sua esistenza e quel che lo circonda, senza limiti di contenuto e con grande curiosità, secondo ottiche alternate, lontane o vicinissime. Non si può certo parlare di una tradizionale cartografia, bensì di un ricerca basata sui sensi, sulla connessione tra l’artista e il quotidiano, perché “tutte le cose vengono per rivelare qualcosa sul loro essere”. Ha definito le sue opere come un “tutto sulla navigazione” e i suoi disegni (ludicrous , dal termine latino ludicrus e ludus ) come “una sorta di giornale… come le lettere di Van Gogh”.   

Il suo lavoro evolve successivamente nei Nature Paintings e nei Natural Portraits, opere eseguite a tecnica mista su alluminio, il cui risultato è indipendente dalla mano dell’artista, in quanto sono le reazioni chimiche a definirne l’evoluzione.   

Tyson espone nelle gallerie e nei musei di tutto il mondo dal 1996, tra le principali mostre recenti citiamo: A Mystery to Myself, David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2014; Panta Rhei, Pace, Londra, 2013; Entangled in the Amber Glow of a Weary Woven World, David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark; Keith Tyson: Contemporary Grotesques, Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois, Paris, France, 2011; Keith Tyson: 52 Variables The Pace Gallery, New York, 2010.

Keith Tyson è un artista inglese. Nato a Ulverston, Regno Unito nel 1969
