Newsday: 'Trinidad artist, writer John Lyons getting renewed attention in England'

T&T Newsday has a feature on poet and artist John Lyons:

“With painting, line, shape, colour, texture and a surface plane are fundamental. So painting is about putting these elements together, into syntactical connection that creates a harmony that can speak to people on a level that is very intuitive…There is so much that I feel that I often find difficult to put in words. When I'm painting, I am in a different place.”

The article talks about John's work, his creative process and his recent popularity in Britain - including an exhibition at the Tate and a month-long solo exhibition, Unmasking the Psyche, at the Felix & Spear Gallery in Ealing, West London.
