Artist Interview: Tyler Keeton Robbins speaks with Tristesse Seeliger
Tyler Keeton Robbins and I spoke this week about his art, inspirations, materials and processes. He credits the Pacific Northwest wilderness and First Nations artists as some of the most profound influences on his art. We discuss early childhood experiences that shaped his start and how finding the authentic gesture is like playing music. Tyler describes his work, “a softer side to abstract symbolism”, explaining “the play between the figurative and the abstract is the place where he likes to live.” This conversation was a joy for me, and I hope it is for you too. His assignment is all about the authentic gesture, of course.
