Event description

Description

“Considered the Andy Warhol of his generation, Shields has produced images that play with notions of the gaze, power structures, hyper-realism, iconoclastic-tendencies and cinematographic practice, but his Mouthful series ofworks are among his best known” – Sotheby’s

We will display a mix of provocateur unseen as well as releasing a new piece from his upcoming series launching on the 6th of June exclusive with Imitate Modern in London. We want to show what Tyler Shields has to give. There’s a lot more in Tylers Provocateur repertoire. Lyric, sexy, dreamy, dangerous are the perfect words for what you can expect on display. It’s a homage to Tyler.


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Tyler Shields was born in Jacksonville, Florida and now recognised as “Hollywood’s favourite photographer”, L.A. based contemporary artist and filmmaker. Shield’s technical brilliance as a has much more to do with the shift in focus from the fragility of the “celebrity photographer” to the output of the contemporary art medium. Most of the talented people who work with him include actors who are serious about their profession, but are not celebrities.

People will go to him to make art rather than celebrity photography. As an artist, Shields’ work and output has much more to do with the long-standing and perhaps transcendental clarity behind controlled subconscious image-making in the vein of Caravaggio’s near photographic paintings in the 16th century, where rules and guidelines of the century were abandoned and / or re-incorporated to challenge the sensibilities of the time.


ABOUT THE GALLERY:
Imitate Modern was established in 2011. Based in central London, Imitate Modern cultivates talent and discovers artists and trends that creates an atmosphere to produce innovative, impeccable and sometimes controversial works of art with a story. Imitate Modern exhibits a line-up of artists at various stages in their practice and careers. From pop up shows to auctions with Phillips, Sotheby’s and Christie’s; we represent experimental and exciting
exhibition programs that aim to stimulate, provoke and captivate globally. Our artists are not just coming with a canvas or photograph, they are coming with a story.
