Studio Wall Drawings
4 May - 8 June 2000

Tyson's drawings are an extraordinary and raw exposure of the thought processes of one of the most original and liberating artists working today. As he works in the studio, Tyson is constantly putting down on to large sheets of paper want he is thinking, what he is planning, what is happening. Some of the drawings are fully-fledged projects, some are a mass of interconnecting ideas, some are lectures or animated discussions with other artists (from Glenn Brown to Leonardo), some are just a collection of gestures, telephone numbers, shopping lists, some are all of the above. Over 30 of these large drawings (each 157 x 126 cm, framed) will fill the gallery, all the walls, floor to ceiling.

Tyson is currently exhibiting a large commissioned work in Over the Edges (the major exhibition in Gent curated by Jan Hoet and Giacinto Pietrantonio) and in The British Art Show in Edinburgh. His work was recently seen in Seeing Time: Works from the Pamela and Richard Kramlich Collection at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and in a solo exhibition at Delfina in London. He is represented in many major public and private collections in the USA and Europe.
