Marc Lyons

Popped Culture

Exhibition in Bus Projects. I’ve really loved the evolution of Lyons work and I find it really inspiring. He has been interested in flesh, advertising, mass consumerism, the body, exploitation and i think it really comes across in all of his works. I am impressed by the way he evolves these ideas materially and how they still come across very successfully. In this exhibition, his use of flesh coloured plastics and skin-like materials was, in some instances, replaced by the pink-neon glow of the light. To me, this made the viewers themselves become part of these machines/images representing the inherent inescapability from mass culture/consumerism.
