The Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery is pleased to introduce the new works by Northwest Painter Don Tiller. Staying true to our gallery’s direction of playful and whimsical work, Tiller is a natural participant.
Residing on the Olympic Peninsula, Tiller is intrigued with the imprint left on the landscape when touched by mankind. With bold colors and simple shapes, he has given this new group of paintings his interpretation of man’s attempt to initiate order in nature. Natural chaos provides interest balanced with geometric repetition.
This recent body of work is primarily composed of interesting shapes and bold colors. The paintings are snippets of warped remembrances allowing you a glimpse of the things he has seen and the places he has been. When someone quips “I think I’ve been there” or “I know where that is” he knows the connection between creator and viewer has been made.
Tiller continues be a gallery favorite and has expanded his collector base across the country with new representation and visibility in several new galleries.
