About the Work
We collaborated with Russell Tyler to create OPGP shortly after his 2017 solo exhibition "Strange Variants" at Denny Gallery (New York). The gallery wrote, "While Tyler’s work shows the influence of iconic abstract artists of the twentieth century such as Josef Albers and Philip Guston, his work is also unmistakably of its time, formed in an age when daily visual experience takes place in digital space and painting has to assert its immediacy." An extension of modernist tradition, Tyler's compositions are transportive yet self-contained within thinly bordered framing that reference the ubiquity of electronic screens found in the digital age of viewing. In OPGP, the coral perimeter pleasantly dissipates into the vibrancy of Tyler's created universe as it leaps across the canvas.
Russell Tyler has mounted solo exhibitions at Galerie Bernard Ceysson (France), Denny Gallery (New York), Ribordy Contemporary (Geneva), Freight + Volume (New York), and Alon Segev Gallery (Tel Aviv). Selected group exhibitions include The Fireplace Project (East Hampton), The Hole (New York), Retrospective Gallery (Hudson), Thierry Goldberg (New York), and East Hampton Shed. Tyler received his BFA from Concordia University (Montreal) in 2006 and received his MFA from Pratt Institute (Brooklyn), in 2010. He was borin in 1981 (Summertown, Tennessee) and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.
Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.
Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.
Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
