New Works by Lyle Carbajal

The upcoming exhibition at Tinney Contemporary Gallery will feature new works by Lyle Carbajal that revisit themes painted in his past work.

Lyle Carbajal uses his paintings to explore the unintentional. Through the use of color, bold line and image placement he hopes to capture the naiveté of daily life. Citing references to childhood imagery such as comics, monsters and machines, Carbajal juxtaposes the innocent associations of youth with the complicated path of maturation.

His focus on the face is evident in each painting, where visages are wild-eyed and gripped with anger, terror, confusion or pain. The depictions of extreme emotive states in his paintings are as raw and innocent as those of a child. Childhood memories and his Latin American background have helped Carbajal search for a primitive expression of the world.
