In the Radiance of Shadows 


Reception: February 17
2:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.

Description: An exhibition featuring the black and white mixed media drawings of Warren Lyons. His paintings and drawings illustrate a way of seeing, conceptualizing and recording the ineffable play of time, light/shadow, dreams, memories and impressions.

From website: My paintings and drawings illustrate a way of seeing, conceptualizing and recording the ineffable play of time, light/shadow, dreams, memories and impressions.

The creation of these pieces entails an interfusing of multiple layers of ideas and images, colors, forms, linear elements, light and shading, while combining with varying points of spatial reference to produce graphically rendered ideas organized in a unified pictorial field. For me, the visual, visceral and cognitive experience engendered by the work is that of an ever blossoming, ever expanding sense of “interiority” akin to that of dreaming.

And so it is with the scapes in which there is an overlapping of visionary scenes and lucent planes, which simultaneously encompass macrocosmic and microcosmic events, strange entities, time warps and the presences by which they are inhabited.

In the end, these works are about the magic, mystery and the enchantment of seeing from the vantage point of irreducible being.
