The exciting, majestic and graceful work of Australian artist Camie Lyons, returns to Hong Kong with her first solo show in Asia, Butterfly Effect. Lyons’ recent body of work includes her famous bronze sculpture and charcoal paper works, as well as a brand new progression towards canvas and use of metallic paints. Lyons’ palpable skill for capturing energy, whether physically making marks on a surface, or melding and contorting bronze into organic flowing shapes, is what has come to embody her oeuvre.

Lyons finds a visual balance and beauty in the constant cycle that is memory, perception and daily life, evoking sinew, limbs, and bone in her light touch and knowing gesture. A primary preoccupation for Lyons has been to capture dance, to trace the lines made while moving, which she has been doing successfully for many years in what she refers to as ‘solid drawings in space’. All these elements - quietly fierce and boldly delicate in their execution - fill the viewer with a feeling “like pirouetting on the inside”.

Lyons lives and works in Sydney where she has had several solo exhibitions. The arist has also had several successful shows outside of Sydney and been awarded public commissions, her work lending itself perfectly to outdoor and public spaces.
