Carol Tyler is drawn to the patina, traces and remains of her subject matter – how age reveals history. She layers, distresses and repaints the images until she has dug out the content she is looking for.
Carol often breaks up the imagery into different spatial areas to suggest the way we get to know a place – gathering bits of information to build the whole picture. A piece of work is finished when it looks old rather than new – when Carol recognises it for the first time.
She works mainly in oil but sometimes includes collage, print and mixed media. The work ranges from 12×12 inches up to 3×4 feet with a price range of £300 to £1100.
Private commissions considered.
