Tyrrell Winston Presents 'Tiger Stripes' at Cranbrook Art Museum

The Detroit-based artist’s first solo museum exhibition.

Tyrrell Winston has been quietly perfecting his game. Well-known for his gridded assemblages made of found basketballs, the Detroit-based artist has ventured across a number of new studies, including collectible editions, large-scale paintings, along with a custom Reebok Question Mid and Club C 85.

Following his Hail Mary solo exhibition at Library Street Collective, Winston concurrently is showcasing his first museum solo show at Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. “I’ve been a lifelong sports fan, but when I started making art, seriously, I never really envisioned that I would treat sport as a medium,” said Winston in an interview.

The latest show, Tiger Stripes, takes its name from the fact that every tiger has its own unique set of stripes, which for the artist, has been used as a metaphor to describe the unique identity, pride, and legacy many feel about their favorite sports team.

The exhibition presents a series of new Protection Paintings, which juxtapose lacquered panels of metallic automotive paint and found discarded tarps. Several of the paintings serve as a homage to Michigan sports through colors that evoke the Detroit Lions, University of Michigan and their bitter rivals, Michigan State University.

Tiger Stripes is on view at Cranbrook Art Museum until September 25.

For more on art, we spoke to Nadia Lee Cohen for the latest Through the Lens.
