Samuel Lynne Galleries presents "Tyler Shields" opening day
Samuel Lynne Galleries welcomes back Tyler Shields to Dallas with a brand-new exhibition, Shields’ latest Silhouette series along with brand new work and a selection of his most iconic photographs.
Shields has spent the last few decades making a name for himself and has become a creative tour de force in the photography & film industries. His willingness to test boundaries has earned him praise from critics around the world. Often collaborating with celebrities, models, comedians, athletes, and actors for his provocative projects, Shields’ photographs are iconic and are making their mark in prestigious collections around the world.
With this collection, Shields has once again secured recognition & attention as an artist who urges audiences – when confronted with an unfamiliar style – to expand their appreciation for photography. He is introducing the viewer to the benefits of breaking the rules, pushing the limits and risking it all for the perfect shot. Shields consistently maintains a visible effortlessness in his work; emphasizing that photography remains what it has always been – a tool for the creativity of the artist.
This exhibition will be open to the public on April 16 at Samuel Lynne Galleries’ Design District location (1105 Dragon St.) and on April 17 at their second Dallas location at The National in Downtown Dallas (205 N. Akard St.). Each location will have the exhibition on view through June 1. This presentation will feature over 20 physical photographs along with an all-new display in the Apollo Experience Center. Apollo is a brand-new App that promises to integrate art into everyday life allowing everyone, anywhere to become the curator. This app will launch May 1 on Android and iOS.
