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.
