More Information

Lyons’ abstract sculpture ranges from exquisite small-scale pieces to monumental works in steel, copper and bronze, inspired by diverse subject matter including ancient art and culture, myth, and landscape. This display takes inspiration from China to explore a series of dialogues in which materials, place and memory resonate; where vast landscapes are re-imagined, reinvented and recreated as small-scale ciphers for the ungraspable scale of nature, echoing Chinese scholars’ rocks as microcosms of the wider spirit of landscape and its relationship to man.
