Acrylic and conte on stretched canvas
36 x 36 inches
Tyler Sorgman is interested in the idea of both revealing and concealing meaning through layering and mark-making. His subject matter includes abstracted landscapes, dreams, and memories. He builds up layers of paint through repetitive marks and symbols, and sees their accumulation as a reflection of his thoughts, feelings, and anxieties at the time of each individual work’s creation. He wants his process to show rather than to be homogenized into one cohesive image. There is not one correct reading of Sorgman’s work. Instead, he seeks to embrace the subjectivity that he feels is inherent in all visual images.
