R R LYON
Bold and raw to subdued and graceful, R.R. Lyon's art is imbued with messages of hope and the beauty of the imperfect as well as a very visible physical process.Through line, collage, stencil and brushstrokes his works on canvas and cast acrylic incorporate iconic and personal imagery as well as text, pattern and rich color fields.
"For many years I asked all the questions before I ever began a new painting. Now I am content to just follow my inspirations, make the work and then ask what it means. I have discovered that I enjoy simply participating in the process. I am currently exploring the dynamic of singular moments that when combined, form a larger statement. I am still drawn to themes of reconciliation, redemption and reclamation as I document my days with paint, canvas, glass and questions. It seems the older I get, the less I know. The less I know the more I want to paint."
