Cyrus Tilton: The Cycle

Art Show,Museum,Sculpture,Installations

Cyrus Tilton (1977–2017) grew up in a remote river valley northeast of Anchorage, AK, where vast expanses of open wilderness were always close at hand. After moving to the urban environment of Oakland at 21, he grew concerned with the world’s burgeoning human population, the earth’s inability to sustain such continued growth and the current trend of mass consumerism. In "The Cycle," the locust serves a cautionary metaphor, and Tilton likens the insect to self-sabotaging consumers whose ultimate end will come once their resources are depleted or a massive natural disaster resets the cycle. Tilton, who died of cancer at 39 in March 2017, received the inaugural John S. Knudsen Prize from the Crocker Art Museum in 2017. The prize supports an emerging or mid-career California artist while also funding programs, exhibitions, acquisitions, and other endeavors related to the artist’s work at the Museum.
