This exhibition is part of the 2018 Medalta International Artists in Residence program.
Long distance relationships make for many hours on the road. Over the years, Tyler Loeffler has been travelling up to 13 hours to see his partner. The exhibition, Along the Way, is a diary of the miles driven and the union between boy and girl.
The plates are a tribute to the road signs encountered in these drives, each symbol painstakingly hand rendered. Using his skills wheel throwing Tyler symbolizes the male and female forms through the vessels lining each wall. While the forms are separated here, representing the tension of being apart, there is happy ending; they meet in the centre for tea, at least on the weekends.
