“At the End of the Day” by David Lyle

by Ken HarmanPosted on

Next Thursday, April 23rd 2010, Lyons Weir Gallery in New York will present a collection of new works by painter David Lyle. Working from found photographs taken in the 50s, 60s and 70s, Lyle meticulously paints them in muted oils, recreating seemingly random scenes from a bygone era. In his latest body of paintings, “At the End of the Day”, Lyle has adjusted his style, adding a more nefarious twist to someone’s more innocent memories. Note the bag of rat poison unusually close to mom as she’s making breakfast. Is dad checking for rain, or did he just throw the secretary out the window? Lily Munster gossips on the street with her shopping friends as a group of children in Disney masks set fire to an abandoned car.
