Spotlight: “‘Rome: Traversing the Sacred’ at Groveland Gallery”

Minneapolis Star Tribune art critic Mary Abbe highlights Charles Lyon’s exhibition of paintings featuring Bernini’s dramatic statutes of angels on the Ponte Sant’Angelo. About Lyon’s paintings, Abbe writes: “The flow­ing forms of Roman Baroque sculp­ture are a nat­u­ral for a paint­er best known for big, lush, Pop-style im­ag­es of roses and oth­er blos­soms … In­stead of ruf­fled flow­er pet­als, Lyon evokes the undulating robes, cas­cad­ing ring­lets and ten­der ex­pres­sions of the 350-year-old sculp­tures.” Read the rest of the Spotlight article here.
