Artist Keith Tyson shows TateShots around his Shoreham studio.



Keith Tyson won the Turner Prize in 2002, with an exhibition of humming machines and large-scale paintings dissecting the mysteries of the universe. Last month he invited us to his studio on the south coast of England, where new work was being prepared for an exhibition at Parasol Unit, London. Amongst them are his ‘Cloud Choreography’ paintings, which explore imagery ranging from the cloud of milk in your coffee to the vapour from an atomic bomb. He also talks about his alchemic ‘Nature Paintings’ which are the result of a chemical reaction; each composition unique and unpredictable. Finally, we take a stroll on the beach to muse on the sources of Keith’s inspiration.
