Oil painting - Old Holland Ivory Black oil paint on white gesso on wood panel

New series of monochromatic paintings by David Lyle who presents a humorous yet biting critique of the art world by reimagining what certain well known artists might be doing today if they had not risen though through the ranks.

Lyle’s painstakingly reductive painting process is a very crucial element to the evolution of his final images. Each piece is rendered using only black paint and turpentine. Lyle begins his process by priming a panel with white gesso. He then paints a thin, rich, oily black veneer over the primed panel, slowly and systematically developing his images by removing some of the black paint with a cloth. In doing so, Lyle renders layer upon layer of various values of black paint resulting in his signature-style of luminescent works.

David Lyle attended the University of California at Santa Barbara’s College of Creative Studies. His work has been exhibited in New York, Miami, Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Laguna Beach, CA and in France and Japan and has been featured in publications such as New York Magazine, Modern Painter, New American Paintings, American Artist, Hi-Fructose, Proximity Magazine and Coast Magazine. This is David Lyle’s fourth solo exhibition with Lyons Wier Gallery. The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
