Tyler Starr’s mixed-media works on paper combine direct observation, poetic associations and elements of yellow journalism to visualize social and spiritual conundrums in such forms as prophetic motorcades from declassified FBI documents and imposing geographical sites associated with tragic stories. The works are made through a combination of drawing, collage, and stencils. He is interested in the ways printed information has been used from its very beginnings to map human endeavors. His work has been exhibited internationally at Yale University’s Haas Arts Library, New Museum for Contemporary Art (New York), Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Liège (Belgium) and Museum of Contemporary Art (Japan).
