Don’t Quit Your Day Job: David Lyle New Exhibition At Lyons Wier Gallery, NYC

David Lyle’s new solo exhibition, titled ‘Don’t Quit Your Day Job’, is currently hosted at Lyons Wier Gallery, New York (Feb.1 – Feb.24, 2018). Continuing on from his last series, ‘Everybody’s A Critic’, a wonderfully caustic commentary on the art world, Lyle resumes his humorous yet bitter critique by re-imagining what well known artists might be doing today if they had not risen though through the art world ranks. Featuring internationally recognized artists such as Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Andy Warhol, Ai Wei Wei, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lyle’s paintings unfold as such; recognizable subject, recognizable composition, laugh, debate narrative, repeat… The narrative, of course, as seen through the lens of a full-time painter and part-time ‘jack of all trades’ who must take whatever job he can get in order to connect the dots and survive.
