Tyler Eash

b. Marysville, CA

Tyler Eash uses interdisciplinary approaches to create new methodologies for understanding the beauty in truth. He works in the realms of sculpture, painting, architecture and performance and is influenced by the Arte Povera and Judson Church movements. His work translates the banal into profound reception through use of everyday and industrial materials such as hair, glass, fibers and found objects. He performs alongside his sculptural work in order to personify them. By choreographing elements of the commonplace Eash questions what is animate/inanimate.

Eash studied architecture and choreography at University of California, Davis. He is the Founding Curator of #* Collective (Bay Area, CA) and is a curator at Ridge Space (Oakland, CA). His work has been exhibited at Safehouse Arts (San Francisco, CA); Pro Arts Gallery (San Francisco, CA); and MAPP (San Francisco, CA). Eash performed with Movement Research at Judson Church (New York, NY); was Artist in Residence at the Shawl Anderson Dance Center (Berkeley, CA) and has collaborated and performed with Sara Shelton Mann (Davis, CA); John Jasperse (Davis, CA); and Forsythe Company Repertory at the American Dance Festival (Durham, NC).
