    Of Human Feelings: Portraits by Warren Lyons

    February 18 - June 18, 2017

    A powerful series of monumental paintings of figures from American history and the arts, including Billie Holiday, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Sojourner Truth, Paul Robeson, and others. Lyons builds the image entirely with his fingers. His vigorous treatment of these haunting faces is combined with personal symbolism.

    A Staten Island resident since the 1980s, Warren Lyons has had a parallel career as a psychiatric social worker. He approaches each portrait as a learning experience, doing deep research into his subjects’ lives and character creating an inner, as well as outer likeness.

    This exhibition has been supported, in part, through funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council for the Arts.
