TYLER BRIGHT HILTON

5 JUNE to 4 JULY 2015

Barbara Edwards Contemporary, Toronto is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Tyler Bright Hilton. The exhibition will feature works from the first and second installments of a 3-part narrative series of etchings and drawings: Minmei Madelynne Pryor Went into the Dryer and Minmei Madelynne Pryor on the Trail of a Liar. The series explores anxiety and adolescent self-identity, emphasizing themes of overwhelming solipsism, escapism and bodily alienation.

His work has been shown in exhibitions nationally and internationally including the Liverpool Biennale (2008), Papier15, Montreal; Slick Dessin, Paris; Aqua Art, Miami; The Knin Fortress, Croatia; and the Drawing Room, London.
