Samuel Lynne Galleries presents Tyler Shields: "The Color of Impact" opening reception
Samuel Lynne Galleries will present Tyler Shields’ exhibition, “The Color of Impact.” This exhibition will feature Shields’ new Paint and Masters series, which is a completely new direction technically and conceptually for the artist.
The images curated for “The Color of Impact” are quintessential of Shields’ trademark edgy and daring style, but are a separation into techniques previously unexplored by the artist. The Paint series was photographed using a vintage Hasselblad 503CW film camera, and the result is some of the most vibrant color and light possible in the field of photography. Shields explores the raw relationship between movement and color, with an added element of unforeseen outcome; the colors, lighting, and model can all be intentional choices, but ultimately the paint behavior is unplanned, and always surprising. Timing was everything, as the camera takes only one frame at a time without rapid fire. Using a bold process is no new concept for Shields, and the photographs in this collection speak for themselves, each one being a colorful surprise.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through September 1.
