Tyler Vlahovich | The Cones
John Tevis Gallery
20 Mar - 24 Apr 2010
47 Rue Chapon, 75003 Paris
Tues - Sat, 12-7pm

John Tevis is pleased to present The Cones, an exhibition of new work by Tyler Vlahovich, opening March 20 and continuing through April 24, 2010. An opening reception for the artist will be held Saturday, March 20 from 6:00 – 8:00pm.

The paintings, drawings and sculptures in Tyler Vlahovich’s The Cones resuscitate and modify aspects of art history from Chinese wall painting to Meso-American calligraphy. Seduced by the narrative style of cave and wall paintings found in the ancient Silk Road town of Tun-huang in western China, the artist loosely divides the picture space in his new watercolor and ink on paper works into cell-like structures, serially repeated but with entire sections of the work left bare, as if time or an interloper made off with crucial pieces of the puzzle. The relationship between the muted, abstract shapes and the hollowed-out voids is symbiotic, allowing the cells to coalesce into an overall image of images.

The work of Tyler Vlahovich has been shown in numerous exhibitions in Europe and the United States. The Cones marks the artist’s first one-person exhibition in France.

John Tevis Gallery is located at 47 rue Chapon in the Marais district of Paris. Gallery hours are noon to 7:00 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. For more information about the gallery, its exhibitions, the artists, and how to get here, please visit our website at or call us at +33 (0)1 42 71 84 83.
