Fine Art | Tyler Vouros
"My drawings and paintings use light to describe dessicated organic forms emanating from a rich velvety darkness. They are an exploratory conversation into the imposed reality of the macroscopic world. A significant metamorphosis occurs when becoming encompassed with this work at an immersive scale; the transformation sometimes departing entirely from its original anatomy. Miniscule realities inspired me to find that which we overlook in order to venture somewhere unrecognizable, yet intriguingly familiar.
The floral forms become brilliantly grotesque when facing their mortality, yet they are forgotten and left to rot. There is beautify in the field of decay: existence continues after demise. A vivid luminosity emerges from the void of the shadows, as one last breath before being returned to the earth. The dried sunflowers pay homage to the natural order of the scientific world."
