Piece description from the artist
My collages tend to focus on themes of escapism, dislocation, and identity. I am interested in associating the foreign with the familiar, in the way dreams weave together subconscious memories, impressions and symbols.
Tyler Varsell graduated from the University of Hartford in 2011 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Multimedia Web Design and Development. While she took a couple photography classes in college, Tyler is mostly self-taught, and has experience in both analog and digital photography. Living in rural Connecticut, Tyler is continually finding inspiration in the beauty and transience of nature.
Tyler has been working primarily in collage and mixed media since 2005, but photography has always been a passion of hers. Most recently, Tyler has been active in sharing her work with the online art community, and has exhibited her work locally. She is currently represented by a contemporary art gallery in Los Angeles, California.
When she's not creating, Tyler works as the web manager for an independent school in Connecticut.
