Andrea Lyons'  work is about the home and the materials that are symbolic of it. I have used wood both to paint on and as part of the subject of the painting. The connection of wood as part of the structure of the house and also part of the tree form. The layers of the bark of the tree as related to the layers of skin. The correlation of flesh to wood and other building materials.
