Bret Lyon: Second Nature II

Bret Lyon

Artist Reception Saturday, June 11, 2011, 6pm-9pm
CoCA Georgetown Gallery
Seattle Design Center, Suite 262, 5701 6th Avenue South, Seattle WA 98108

Utilizing mixed media objects Lyon creates sculptures with found superfluities. Reconstructing piano pieces, “Movement No. 37” is 70” x 10” x 4” in scale (see detail above) and is proportionally intriguing with the repetition of shapes and color. The colors shift between the wood elements to purple and red. Lyon states, “The use of discarded material has always been second nature to me, whether it is in art or in life. It only seemed fitting to join my second nature with my art.” Lyon received his BA as well as MFA at Central Washington University, Ellensburg, WA.

On exhibit through July 8, 2011 at CoCA Seattle Design Center, Georgetown.
