Tyler Eash is an artist working in a post-disciplinary fashion, using performance, sculpture, drawing, painting, film, music and poetry as means to embody their modes of being. In their practice, sincere confession, fact and fiction are equally weighted, merged and manifested into a series of visual artifacts, texts, and happenings. Built in response to the removal of one’s own history, ancestral culture, and sense of self, Eash’s work engages the medium of identity to express our inherent imaginations as the last frontier of true sovereignty. Whether material or immaterial, Eash’s work employs the body as a working document, an avatar to represent the desires of a post-capitalist, post-colonial, post-gender self, becoming an interface between a queer rural artist of the Indigenous American and Irish diasporas and the Anglo-colonial realms of high culture.
