About the Item: Artist's Statement

"This is a painting I made in the 90's, before my forms became more biomorphic. I was exploring simple geometric forms but with extremely complex surfaces, using wax, tar and other more exotic media in addition to oil and acrylic. This one is particularly large and makes a powerful statement, I think."

G. Campbell Lyman's paintings up until now have all been sold privately, directly to collectors and designers, often before completion. They are in collections from Beirut, to London, to Madrid. There is no availability in the secondary (auction) market as of now.

These paintings have been placed not only in contemporary settings, but surprisingly in rooms of fine antiques as well, creating a tension between the classic and the contemporary -- like the abstract works you sometimes see in uber-traditional dining and living rooms of seasoned collectors. This is a large painting that will make its present felt throughout an entire room.

(About recent series by the artist): “These paintings are a refreshing departure from the current abstract art world’s seemingly endless parade of fields of color with scribbles providing form, a style that is easily mimicked and has become a sort of “safe,” accessible go-to. There are confident decisions in these paintings appearing as commitments of strongly delineated forms and unexpected collisions of color that give the work a visceral, confident and playful soul, increasingly missing from contemporary expressionist abstraction. They are the paintings of a real painter rather than a decorative artist.”
