Artist Statement

I am a conceptual artist, who uses the photographic medium to tell complex, yet ambiguous and unconventional stories about the human condition that have an intense emotional impact on those who experience my imagery.

I utilize a minimalistic approach in the setup of my images, which usually involves a maximum of two models, a single prop, and a non-distracting background. My tonal aesthetics incorporate a dark, muted and cinematic quality.

The faces of the subjects in my images are frequently obscured, which alongside all of the other elements of my images gives my work a unique and somber feel that often disturbs but captures the attention of the viewer.

Connecting with my audience on a deep level and taking them on a journey through their own emotions and experiences is my main aim with my artwork. 
Nowadays, even though we are more connected than ever, we often feel alone in our struggles and as if there is no one who understands us. 

My work extends a hand of support and empathy to those who feel that way, because no matter who you are, you are not alone, and it is okay to not be okay.

Artist Biography

Tyler Grace is a conceptual photographic artist, born in 1993 and based between Albury and Melbourne, Australia, who specializes in creating dark and emotional images that tell stories in an impactful way.

After 4 years of photography being a very small hobby and escape from his chronic health issues, Tyler truly began to emerge as an artist in 2016, as he began to take photography seriously, exhibit his work and enter competitions, thus turning his hobby into his passion and his career.

Throughout the years since he has developed his style and made his work darker, more thought-provoking and cinematic in nature, with his images including desaturated tones, heavy contrast and slight textures that give the images a grittier feel than they would have otherwise.

He has been a finalist and won awards such in regional, national and international competitions,  such as the MAMA Art Prize and the Chiltern Art Prize.
He also won the Young Regional Artist Scholarship through Create NSW in 2016.

His most recent, and most important achievement was winning the art category and third place overall in Australasia's Top Emerging Photography Awards 2019.

Tyler continues to exhibit his work in group shows all over the world, enter competitions and is about to debut and tour his new exhibition "Going Viral" both nationally and internationally.

Tyler aims to continue creating images that will engage the viewer and make them experience emotions that they never expected to feel from viewing a photograph.
