Andrea Lyons during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

The womb is the original Home. My work is about the home and the materials that are symbolic of it.  I have used wood both to paint on and as part of the ubject of the painting. The connection of wood as part of the structure of the house and also part of the tree form. The layers of the bark of the tree as related to the layers of skin. The correlation of flesh to wood and other building materials. 

I use a cut wood shape to paint on instead of the usual rectangle. Many works I have done have the grain of the wood elaborated. Sometimes a part of a figure will appear or a bird. I use paint like it was clay. Sometimes I make my own encaustic paint, which is a mixture of wax and oil paint. Textures are important to me.
