Tyza’s practice is a continually evolving self-portrait formed through paintings, digital images and installations. The work deals with the production and perceptions of gendered identity and concurrent social norms. At Boxcopy, Tyza experimented with video-based installation and continue an exploration of self-portraiture through digital mediums.
The project Dense Plant Scenes centred on a video profile of Tyza Stewart’s art practice. As a dense plant scene painter, Tyza Stewart uses the practice to experiment and think about ways the artist is perceived based on physical presence and the impact this has on both the subjectivity of the artist, and the art practice itself.
