      Natalie Tyree: #millenialproblems

      The Beverly & Sam Ross Gallery at Christian Brothers University announces an exhibition by Natalie Tyree opening on November 8 in the gallery foyer. Entitled “#millennialproblems,” the exhibit shows works employing a mixed-media combination of digital images and old-school media such as watercolor and letterpress. A public reception for the artist will be held on Friday, November 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The exhibition will run through December 16.

      The machine, in some form or fashion, is omnipresent in today’s contemporary culture, and Natalie Tyree says that the bulk of her artwork was formerly generated by images captured and manipulated digitally. "It then evolved by taking a step back from the computer as the dominant tool," she explains. "Combining watercolors, doodles, and collage-based media allowed me to marry the notion of natural organic elements with the idea of the machine as tool."

      Tyree’s current work explores a series of questions: Where do our minds go when we’re overwhelmed by our daily routine, pop-culture ideations, and social media streams? Do we realize how much information we actually consume? Can we create alternate narratives from all of this information?

      Tyree currently teaches graphic design at Western Kentucky University.
