"Green Thoughts: Recent Landscapes by Mari Lyons"
2008-09-09 until 2008-10-04
First Street Gallery
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Green Thoughts/Recent Landscapes is Mari Lyons thirteenth exhibition at First Street Gallery - and her first of country images in ten years. Previous recent shows have been of studio interiors, still lifes, figure studies, and a series of highly praised urban landscapes made in her New York studio on the busy corner of Broadway and 80th Street. The title Green Thoughts is drawn from those marvelous and haunting lines in Andrew Marvels poem The Garden: Annihilating all thats made To a green thought in a green shade. The new paintings, all made in her studio in Woodstock, New York, are intimate, painterly, and imbued with a vibrant energy that has been one of the salient qualities of her work for many years. First Street Gallery promotes their artists with an absolutearts.com Gallery Porfolio.

Unlike the images of the vast Montana spaces she painted in the 1980ís, these new landscapes are connected to an individual oak or magnolia tree, a well-loved courtyard behind her studio, the tree-filled hillside beyond her window - and they display inevitable differences according to the season in which they were painted. These are very personal paintings of mostly green things in the natural world that surrounds the place in which the painter works - a green world to which she feels especially attached. Please visit the artistís website for a fuller look at the scope of her work and career www.marilyonsstudio.com .
