December 12 — January 26, 2018

Opening Reception: December 12th, 7–9pm

“Lyon’s subject matter, car washes on the East Coast, offers architecture as a point of departure. As if conducting a scientific experiment, the use of time in the new work acts as a control — specifically the “blue hour” just after the sun goes down. A consistent point of view throughout the series that captures two frames acting as distinct areas of focus within each photograph, delineated by both light and materiality, is also present: the boxy interior of the carwash and the driveway entrance/exit as a portal to the world.”
