Tyree’s Artist Statement
Made on his Object D’Art~ The Chromatic Typewriter, a modified 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter. He replaced the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels.
Tom Robbins says the Pacific Northwest is “a landscape in a minor key”. Tyree is riffing off that in his PNW paintings. This is in progress. Oil on canvas. 42″x22″.
(Oh how I wish I had the wall space.)
I certainly understand why you have a creative crush. Thanks for introducing him and his work.
Pretty Amazing. He is also very friendly. If you ever find yourself in Bellingham, WA make a point to visit him in his studio.
