About the Artist

Tyza Stewart is a visual artist whose ongoing project of self-portraiture looks at ways to communicate experiences of gender as changeable, flexible, and outside of prescriptive categories.

Stewart has held solo exhibitions across Australia, including at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; FirstDraft, Sydney; The Arts Centre, Gold Coast; Boxcopy, Brisbane; Heiser Gallery, Brisbane; and 55 Sydenham Road, Sydney, and has been included in major group exhibitions such as ‘Young Ones’, QAGOMA (2018); ‘Close Enough’, Caloundra Regional Gallery (2017); ‘Painting More Painting’, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2016); ‘National Self-Portraiture Prize’, UQ Art Museum, Brisbane (2015); ‘Discerning Judgement, Supreme Court Library Brisbane (2015); GOMA Q, QAGOMA (2015); and The Churchie Emerging Art Prize, Griffith University Art Gallery (2013).

About the Artwork

Tyza Stewart’s self-portraiture documents memories from their own childhood as well as more current experiences to inform an interrogation of understandings of normality in relation to gender. By both resisting and engaging with popular understandings of transsexual narratives, Tyza highlights some alternatives to the strict binary understandings of gender that constantly proliferate within our society.
