“Tyeschea West was one of the principle photographers of Where is Here, photographic portraits of the people of East Austin, ages 0-100. For Drawing Conclusions, she expands her palette. She layers and deconstructs her photography with collage and painting, either obscuring the image or clarifying the ambiguities and motions of her subjects. West remains a portraitist. Sensitive, kind and genuinely curious, the work shows her care for the people who sit for her lens.
“There are so many factors that contribute to the many layers of a person. Their spirit, parents, environment, the era, family history, friends, experiences, education, maybe even past lives… Like a snowflake, these multiple facets create a unique human being no one has ever seen or heard before. And yet, we still find and recognize similarities in various versions of humanity. Valuing the many beautiful colorful ways we are different while appreciating the wonderful ways we are the same is a feat that I hope to notice and understand more each day, in life and art.” —Tyeschea West”
