About the work
Tyson Reeder
American, b. 1974
Follow

Tyson Reeder creates paintings, drawings, and sculpture in a naïve, flat, and sometimes cartoonish style, exploring subject matter that has included landscapes, heads, garments, animals, stars, and feet, as well as abstract forms. Working in materials such as crayon, marker, pencil, watercolor, and synthetic paint, and with various application tools—pens, plastic knives and forks, and his hands—Reeder has described his experimental, mixed-media approach as “temporarily suspending the burden of art history, with its myriad ways of contextualizing every type of painting move, to let accident and invention come into the process.” Reeder often paints en plein air, and includes references to hip-hop and pop culture in his work. He is the brother and musical and artistic collaborator of Scott Reeder, with whom he has produced special events and shows, including art fairs submerged in darkness and in bowling alleys.
