Nicola Tyson – Gestural freedom

Tyson’s drawings have a gestural freedom and immediacy that simultaneously open up spatial and psychological dimensions. The figures that inhabit these works – human, animal and sometimes curious amalgamations – are at times grounded in a landscape or at other moments left to float free on the page. There is an attendant and intimate care that imbues Tyson’s drawings combined with a certain sense of play that reveals the artist’s wry sense of humor. Whereas Tyson’s paintings of reduced, abstracted figures are sometimes considered enigmatic, her drawings are striking for their clarity, spontaneity and intimacy.
