|TYLER SHEILDS: Controlled Chaos|
Opening Friday, October 12
Artinfo.com calls Tyler Shields "Hollywood's Hottest and Most Twisted Photographer"; GQ (Gentleman's Quarterly,UK) puts him in their 2012 list of "100 Best Things in the World"; LA Weekly says: "The mystery behind his relationships and habits captivate the media, not unlike the art world's best-known friend of the famous, Andy Warhol", and Huffington Post states, "Tyler is a madman, and one of the most cutting edge artists around."
Whatever people say about Tyler Shields, they can't stop talking about him. His photo shoots are featured regularly in the glossiest magazines and global media. Tyler doesn't work with editors to produce pretty pictures to sell magazines. He works with the biggest artists of our time to make art.
He has been called an "arch illusionist" who "has made a parallel universe of his own, full of fantasy and provocation, complicit with Alice in Wonderland and Henry Miller." --Heather Seidler for Ladygunn magazine.
The body of work recently exhibited in his sold-out London show, Beyond The Gates, was heavily influenced by Tyler Shields' muse and girlfriend, Francesca Eastwood (daughter of Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood).
