Travis Wyche’s work is a reminder of the astoundingly limited understanding that even the greatest scientists have of human cognition. His art sends the ego packing on psychedelic pilgrimages, a smeared focus on the infinitesimal keeping the mind unhinged, turning itself inside out while transversing a psychosomatic event horizon beyond which lies new dimensions and new worlds: a cosmos defiant of definition. Embracing of paradox, massaging the ugly bruises of beauty, infesting interstices and never letting the senses lock into stasis; Wyche’s hallucinatory vision is truly transporting. Not content with fantasy or fancy, we are kept firmly rooted upon terra firma whilst being unrepentantly enraptured by reverie, wide-eyed gazing woolgatherers with stars and planets whirling about to the harmony of our cerebral hemispheres in perfect perpetuity. Our eyes have wings and we are typewritten tattoos of dreams. An odd precision filled with revolt, this work makes us more awake to our own space in our own world while being fugitives within them.
