About Eve Chayes Lyman - Artist Statement:
My art is deeply emotional in nature - responding to the world around and within me in a personal way. The inspiration for much of my work is found in the figure, with its infinite capacity to express and embody the complexity of what it means to be human. The naked body, vulnerable, unencumbered by context, time or place, has been a powerful vehicle, since time immemorial, for the depths of emotion and psyche contained within us all.
Making art is a journey into the unknown. I find that every genuine act of self expression is an act of courage. My art expresses a passion for the humanness I have discovered in people from all walks of life, in all corners of the globe. I regard making art as a sacred trust. As a world, we need art - to touch something in us we might not otherwise have found, to awake something, perhaps dormant, to open our eyes and allow us to see freshly.
