About David Tycho

 

David Tycho was born in Vancouver B.C., and later attended U.B.C., where he studied painting under renowned Canadian artist Gordon Smith. After working through a number of Modernist styles, he arrived at his personal interpretation of figurative expressionism, which remained his focus until moving to Asia in 1984.

 

In Kyoto, Tycho was exposed to Shodo, a Japanese style of calligraphic painting. He was particularly intrigued by the paintings of Zen monks, whose fluid, gestural brushwork often renders the characters illegible, and ultimately abstract. At the same time, he was also inspired by the paintings of Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline and Willem deKooning, and David soon began to explore abstraction for himself.

 

In 1990, David began working through a number of abstract styles: from gestural, painterly expressionism, to hard-edged minimalism.

 

In1995 Tycho began making frequent sojourns into wilderness areas—from the austere deserts of California and Nevada to the coastal rainforests of British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. Forms and colours of the natural environment found their way onto his palette, and, in combination with intuitive aesthetic impulses, the resulting works were a synthesis of landscape painting and abstraction.

 

A trip to Asia in 2011 rekindled David’s interest in Japan and Japanese art, and his Japan Series is informed and inspired by this. The paintings are more figurative in nature, containing a number of recognizable Japanese themes and motifs.

 

These days Tycho’s work has taken on a markedly urban look, inspired by the dynamism of large cities. He is also experimenting with collage techniques.

 

David has exhibited his works in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, Penticton, Whistler, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Seattle, Los Angeles, Brussels, Geneva, Singapore and Manila, and his work is collected on three continents. His paintings can also be seen in numerous feature films.

 

In addition to painting, Tycho is an often-published writer of articles on art, social issues and wilderness travel, and winner of a CBC Canadian Literary Award for a personal essay on Nevada’s Great Basin Desert. He has also contributed to two books, written nine screenplays, two novels, and numerous short stories. He has been interviewed on radio, television and for print media numerous times.

 

David now divides his time between painting, writing, teaching, traveling, cycling, hiking and karate. He currently lives in Vancouver.

                            DAVID TYCHO: ARTIST’S STATEMENT

 

Despite the efforts of art theorists, critics and historians to fill libraries with ideas concerning the nature of art, words always fall short, and in many cases miss the mark entirely. Words and painting, it seems, have never made good companions. This is particularly true of abstract painting, which tends to resist accurate or meaningful interpretation. At the end of the day, there is only the painting, the viewer, and silence. This enigma is what sustains my interest in abstract painting.

Although my work often contains external references—a horizon line for example—it is not so much concerned with the nature of landscape as it is with the process of painting and the expressive potential of paint. The natural or built environments are used as starting points from which each painting evolves and transforms, until the external references are subdued by elements of abstract expressionist painting. The paintings are ultimately explorations of line, color, form and gesture, and their ability to elicit emotional or spiritual responses. They are intended to be viewed as one would listen to instrumental music, without feeling a need to attach a meaning or narrative.
