**CORRECTION: Some of the printed catalogs have photos of Laura Tyler's and Jessica Tyler's art switched and Laura's website listed under Jessica's name.
It's my goal as an artist to take complex subjects - mainly plants, plant systems and landscapes - and make clarifying representations of them that balance abandon with control. If I can make a painting, object or photograph that feels simple while retaining some of its subject's essential character and mystery, then by my measure, I have succeeded with that piece. Part of my process is expressive and part of it is restrained. By balancing personal gesture against a limited palette and a formal approach to composition, I aim to make organic work with a modern sensibility that is relaxed, clear and whole.
