Art to live on
TYREN Laidlaw passed away recently after living with cancer for two years.
She was a passionate individual whose community work and general interest in people made her beloved of many, in particular her three teenage children and partner, Shae Brown.
Tyren created art as a means to explore her experience of life. She didn't imagine that her work was gallery material.
But Shae has put together a body of Tyren's work and, with the assistance of renowned artist Jackson Gooch, curated Beyond Reason, named for this title found among her journals.
It seems Tyren knew, on some level, there would be an art show after all.
Beyond Reason will open at Gallery 33.3 on Good Friday, March 29, at 7pm, and continue on Saturday, March 30, from 10am.
No commission will be taken on pieces sold, as profits will be donated to the Community Palliative Care service in thanks for the support they gave Tyren and her care team, to fulfil her wish to die at home.
