Charles Lyon

I wanted to find a natural subject close to home, unique to this region. A subject that was common and ubiquitious—not the sublime but the mundane. I wondered if I could make paintings of something as everyday and familiar as Cedar Lake. One spring day I went for a walk there and what I found was not a landscape but a chaoatic scene of both decay and growth. I was attracted to this chaos of last year’s collapsed cattails with green shoots emerging. It felt very alive but I was not sure how to represent it. I took some photographs.
