Tyrell Collins

Though Tyrell Collins has been an oil painter for most of her career she started drawing with colored pencil in 2015. She has maintained a full-time studio practice for over 25 years which continued during the pandemic, providing her with refuge and balance during that difficult year. Tyrell draws with colored pencil on black paper using repeated, layered lines to create a vaporous, luminous atmosphere on the dark surface. She is attempting to create a visual suggestion of the overlap between physics and metaphysics, the outside edge of intellect and the inside edge of intuition. She is interested in this intersection, where proof and certainty meet imagination and conjecture. In her practice and in her drawings, Tyrell is trying to inhabit and describe this ethereal, ephemeral territory. These drawings are the result of three decades of experimentation with two goals. The first has been to develop a visual language that illustrates a coalescence of the elements most central to her experience of the world. The other has been to develop the patience and discipline with which to produce it.
