Dance of the Dainty Bronze Lines

Australian artist Camie Lyons is the rising star of the international art scene, known for creating beautiful, and delicate sculptures that depict organic flowing shapes. Though made out of solid bronze, her sculptures offten seem elusive and shape-shifting. If they are placed in different spaces, lit in an appropriate manner of simply viewed from different angles they can take on a variety of roles and convey an array of human emotions. With her unique visual language, the artist creates the fantasy world of her own, where movement and form are joined together in a intricate, alluring dance.

Tenderness and Tenacity by Camie Lyons

The title of the exhibition Tenderness and Tenacity elaborates the concept of the show. At fist glance, there is nothing tender about making a bronze sculpture. It’s well thought-through, time-consuming, hard work. Yet an artist needs a tender touch to portray things as fragile as butterfly wings, pure hearts and sacred birds. And that’s exactly what Camie Lyons does in her latest series of works. Tenderness and Tenacity present the artist’s mystical world where she melts metals like the alchemist, plays with dragons and explores the idea of beauty itself. These main ideas are also explored with a series of charcoal drawings that will be exhibited at Tenderness and Tenacity exhibition alongside Camie Lyons’ sculptural works.
