Brach Tiller returns to River House Arts for his second solo exhibition. A Post-Digital artist born in 1991, Tiller is currently based in Detroit. He received his BFA from Bowling Green State University and is an MFA candidate at Cranbrook Academy of Art.
Working predominantly in acrylics, Tiller’s hard-edge saturated paintings employ subtle intimations of humor to address the seriousness of the human condition. His work has been shown in exhibitions across the United States as well in Paris, Munich, and Antwerp.
My paintings are developed in a methodical, humorous, and assorted manner. The hard-edge approach I adopt satisfies my overly obsessive desire to control the environment in which I inhabit. This way of painting produces a finished surface that is slick and flat; mimicking the experience of viewing digitized images on a screen. It is in my interest in dealing with the absurdity of the human condition that my work fuses together the dichotomy of the serious and the comical. This intermingling of disparate subjects is presented in my paintings by way of an organized stream-of consciousness that traces art history and pop culture.
