"It is difficult not to be invited into Tyga's sense of pattern, of place, of light and movement. You can see her love of Constable's sky sketches, the patterns of Vuillard's palette, the en plein air paintings of the Post-Impressionists and, in Tyga's own words, 'Bonnard, with his mind-blowing use of colour and memory'. 

 

"Heraclitus said 'No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.' This rings as true for Cezanne and his relationship with Mont St Victoire as it might for Tyga and the beloved trees of Wiltshire or her paintings, shown here, of Monte Pellegrino in Sicily. Always questioning, always exploring how we encounter nature and our relationship with it, Tyga's pictures will transport you to a wilderness, a mountain, a sea, a simple copse, where nature heals with a patient magnificence."
