For Dyson, these subjects in relationship to each other produce questions of abstraction that point to ideas of autonomy, environmental liberation, and perception. TORKWASE DYSON considers spatial relations an urgent question both historically and in the present day. Through abstract paintings, Dyson grapples with ways space is perceived and negotiated, particularly by Black and brown bodies. Explorations of how the body unifies, balances, and arranges itself to move through natural and built environments become expressive and discursive structures within the work.
