Tyler’s Emerging Artist exhibition highlights exceptional works from Tyler’s recent body of work, Home Is Where the Heart Is, which is a reflective homage to the comfort and joy of family experienced through travels together. In his Artist Statement, Tyler notes: “Reflecting back on the last ten years of travelling with my family has made me realize that home is really where the heart is. There have been deep conversations and countless memories while being on a highway. These experiences have pulled our family closer together. The seats of our car hold the same meaning that many associate with a gathering space in their home. The past ten years of travels have given me constant inspiration.”
