Tyler Los-Jones produces objects and images from his home in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. The work he has produced over the past decade aims to complicate inherited assumptions of environments by bringing the unnatural aspects of the western conception of nature to the forefront. Los-Jones is fascinated by the role photography plays in the production and the fulfillment of our expectations for environments.
Recent solo exhibitions have taken place at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Banff), Jarvis Hall Gallery (Calgary) and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge). Los-Jones has been commissioned to produce multiple large-scale public artworks including, A panorama protects it’s view for the Art Gallery of Alberta (Edmonton) and To keep the promise at the Calgary Airport Marriott Hotel. Los-Jones’ work is included in numerous permanent collections including TD Canada Trust, Royal Bank of Canada, City of Calgary, Alberta Foundation of the Arts and the Government of Canada.
Tyler would like to thank the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Rozsa Foundation, the Esker Foundation and the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.
