Jane Durrell profiles painting Tyler Wilkinson who is currently an Artist in Residence at Manifest Gallery, Cincinnati.

Commenting on figurative painting Wilkinson notes: "You can connect more strongly there... Since the first figures were drawn on the cave walls of Lascaux in southern France mankind has been obsessed with the human experience. Figurative paintings transcend reality, evoke innately human happenings. Figurative art is very powerful when well done." He continues: "I keep pushing myself to observe better, transcribe my feelings better, to paint with greater clarity. It’s always on my mind."
