Alongside his work with Residency, Tyler is a self-taught, multi-disciplinary artist working in painting, music/audio art, film photography, and digital art. Tyler’s visual work often includes perspectives created by instruments of perceptual distortion: mirrors, magnifying glasses, microscopes, etc. that depict subjects who are both themselves and the objects of their own distortion. His style is influenced by Japanese Ukiyo-e prints and the paintings of American artist Mary Cassatt.
