Enamellist Brinsley Tyrrell Speaks at Lunch on Friday

CIA's Lunch on Fridays Lecture Series welcomes enameling visiting artist Brinsley Tyrrell on Friday, October 15.

Enamellist Brinsley Tyrrell Speaks at Lunch on Friday

Join us this Friday at 12:15pm in CIA’s Ohio Bell Auditorium to hear a free, public talk by local legend Brinsley Tyrrell. Known for his work as a sculptor and as a public artist, Tyrrell has embedded himself deeply into the region's culture in a profound way. Areas of our life are regularly punctuated and enriched by his work as we walk down a street or through an airport.

In 2007 in response to a commission for an RTA station, Brinsley Tyrrell began exploring the potential of enamel. It was a medium for which he had no formal training. The results were a series of large-scale (often over 48 inches in their largest dimension) enameled landscapes fired in the vintage oversized kiln located at Kent State University. Sometimes refiring a plate 15 to 20 times, Tyrrell let his lack of expertise give him permission to experiment beyond the boundaries. It proved a process that gave way to unfettered, expressive images of the land drenched in saturated color.

Tyrrell will discuss his work, including pieces most recently on view at the William Busta Gallery in Cleveland, as part of his artist talk at The Cleveland Institute of Art on October 15.
Brinsley Tyrrell is a native of Godstone, England. He received his education at Camberwill School of Arts and Crafts at the The University of London. He is a Professor Emeritus at Kent State University. His work is represented by Cleveland-based gallerist William Busta.

The Lunch on Fridays Lecture Series is generously supported by the Liberal Arts and Foundation Environments. Brinsley Tyrrell appears with the support of the Enameling Department. Special thanks to William Busta Gallery.
