Heavily inspired by folk legends, Tyler’s art explores the sometimes invisible impact of faint and distorted memories. With only one source, his own admittedly unreliable memory, Tyler delves into the fragmented recollections of his childhood. The show immerses the viewer in an inordinately white, dreamlike space, surrounded by familiar objects, materials, and symbols that are simultaneously obscure, and elusive. Working with the central themes of childhood, distortion, fragility, and fleetingness, the show examines the effect of time on memory: An effect that is impossible to pinpoint, calculate, or predict. “Buttermilk,” the kind of pancakes Tyler remembers his grandma pouring into recognizable shapes on a cast iron skillet, begs the questions: Did that happen? Why do I care? And does it even matter?
