DENA LYONS

Dena's work revolves around la joie de vivre. She finds this joy of life expressed in the panoply of colors that we all experience everyday; the sun beaming down on one’s face and the intricate subtleties of people. Her paintings remind viewers to recognize these colors as wondrous, rather than mundane.  She explains her paintings can be read as narratives as well as placed in a space and time. Her works are all part of an ongoing investigation into the myriad of colors of life.
