STATEMENT

Tyler Sorgman is interested in exploring how the landscape can act as a symbol for the psychological. Sorgman’s recent work includes imagery of plant growth, mountain ranges, storms, and forest fires. A solitary home is often set into these imagined spaces. The scenes Sorgman creates are meant to feel both playful yet perilous; dreamy yet uneasy. Throughout Sorgman’s body of work, there is a play between flatness, depth, and the simplification of complex forms. He builds up layers of paint through repetitive marks and symbols, and sees their accumulation as a reflection of his thoughts, feelings, and anxieties at the time of each individual work’s creation.
