Lot 12 - Karyn Lyons - Untitled Still Life
Watercolour on Paper
Signed on Verso
Curated by Beth Greenacre
Karyn Lyons is a painter who lives and works in New York City. She depicts intimate interior scenes, dramatically lit still lifes, and enigmatic snatches of personal life in rich hues and expressionist brushstrokes. Lyons’s portraiture often depicts feminine sitters in moments of repose. She has a particular knack for capturing recognizable scenes from adolescence, with subjects shown gazing longingly at album covers, posing with cigarettes, and waiting by the telephone. Lyons worked for years as an art director in the fashion industry, and her background informs her attention to the details of demeanor and dress. She pursued graduate studies in fine art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University and worked as a studio painter for Jeff Koons before fully coming into her own practice.
