David Lyle

Everyday People

With a vernissage accurately scheduled for October 31, NYC's Bane Gallery - in association with Lyons Wier Gallery - is proud to announce the latest solo-show of David Lyle titled “Everyday people“, for which he transformed the city's citizens into werewolves, witches, skeletons and all different kinds of classic monsters.

“Lyle continues his painstakingly reductive process which is a very crucial element to the evolution of his final image. Each painting is crafted using only black oil paint and turpentine. Lyle begins his process by priming a wood 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 various values of black paint resulting in his signature-style of luminescent monochromatic works.“
