Known for her gestural and explorative approach to painting and sculpture, Tyne revels in the various qualities of her medium to create texture and energy in the surfaces of her work. Tyne's practice is meditatively intuitive. Smooth slick areas, exuberant impastos, gestural smears, cracks and scratches are all commonplace. There's an interest in alchemical processes and chemical reaction, with her works also referencing the relation between body and landscape. Tyne's works are often an assortment of opposites; abstraction with figuration or chaos alongside control. She is constantly editing, experimenting, and breaking her own rules.Read More
The framing of her paintings and sculptures are an important aspect of Tyne's practice. She casts her own frames from a mixture of different materials—resin, pewter, aluminium, moss, plastic—mirroring the materiality of her paint surfaces, which are in turn referenced in the character of her sculptures. Metal and resin frames wobble and snake around her works, pushing her paintings between the two and three dimensional. Tyne's approach to making and materiality creates an immersive experience with her exhibitions, her paintings being one aspect of a larger whole.
