Bryan Tingey 'Travels of an Explorer'


Exhibition dates March 30 - April 29

Exhibition opening Wednesday April 4 at 1pm

"I was drawn towards DADAism because of the idea that art is an everyday occurrence and an accidental spill of liquid can be “art”.

My disability made me turn to my passion, art, and my love of it, to research Art as a socialistic message.  From Assyrian clay tablets and Egyptian Hieroglyphs to the 20th century Dadaist’s. All so pertinent.

I ventured into abstraction for a few reasons while doing my Masters in 2000. For one I called upon aspects of my disability. That is, I used my disability as my muse, it was the most prevalent part of me. One of the major aspects of my disability, at that time, was speaking.

Letters and words appear in most of my artworks, which is because I look at letters as graphical images rather than pure guttural communication. Also, one of the early symptoms of my disability is slurring words and voice weakness". Bryan Tingey 2018
