Gina Tomao was one of the first artists to make prints with Kenneth Tyler at his newly established custom printing shop, Gemini Ltd., in Los Angeles California. Unfortunately very little has been published about Tomao, but recently her son Charles Lynn Bragg kindly shared some memories of his mother.
Australian duo The Aston Shuffle have created a playlist for the NGA’s Art+Sound pop-up program, inspired by our exhibition ‘David Hocnkey’s prints’. “We have approached the playlist in two different parts. Part one includes cutting edge and celebrated artists from the 60’s and 70’s who, like Hockney, pushed boundaries in their respective fields and who have since become iconic to that time. A number of these artists were associated with the emergence of the pop art movement, like David Bowie […]

On the eve of International Women’s Day, what better time to celebrate and recognise the significant achievements of the women artists represented in the Tyler Collection. Of the collection’s 77 artists, only 6 are female – in part a reflection of an art world long dominated by men. However, while they may have been outnumbered by their male contemporaries, these women – Anni Albers, Helen Frankenthaler, Nancy Graves, Joan Mitchell, Altoon Sultan and Gina Tomao – were not overshadowed. They […]
We can hardly believe that 2014 has arrived! Team Tyler had a wonderfully busy, productive year in 2013. Roy Lichtenstein: Pop remix travelled to the red centre of Australia, opening at Araluen Arts Centre, Alice Springs in April. In an emphatic end to its successful national tour, the exhibition returned to the National Gallery of Australia in July, where it has been on display since.

Upon opening his own workshop in 1965, Tyler began a long and involved […]

You can see some examples of this kind of work on Hockney’s website: http://www.hockneypictures.com/home.php. […]
