About the work
Nicola Tyson
British, b. 1960
Follow

Nicola Tyson is known for her assertive depictions of the human body, typically odd arrangements of patched-together, distorted, or missing parts rendered in a bright but reduced color palette. Balancing figuration with abstraction, her psychologically complex works reference Surrealism and artists such as Francis Bacon, James Ensor, and Pablo Picasso. Tyson's paintings and prints all begin in her line drawings and sketches, which she considers a distinct practice that allows for an exploration of the imagination and unconscious through focused free-association.
