About the Item: Artist's Statement: "This painting originally looked different, and though it had 22 saves on it and looked sure to sell there was just something that bothered me about it. So I repainted it, as part of a new series of figurative paintings I am doing (most of my work is abstract). I am a lot happier with it now. I also put it in a professional float frame, which looks great on it. I don't like to beat collectors over the head with titles and 'meanings,' but this series has to do with the relationship between language and the corresponding visual associations."

“Lyman’s work evolves restlessly, with the common elements generally being deft and unusual color choices that balance assonance and dissonance, and vestiges of the hand and facture purposely left in the paintings. The negative space is often so meticulously worked that it’s almost as if the objects – usually simple shapes – are there as much to complement the background as vice versa. Despite the often bold colors there is an elegance about his paintings that prevents them from being either loud or decorative. "

“His 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.”
