About

This exhibition will explore machinery and mythology as two of the key themes which endure in the work of sculptor Michael Lyons, who studied at Newcastle University in the late 1960s and has gone on to gain international recognition, undertaking large-scale public sculpture commissions as far afield as Mexico and China. 

From an early interest in steel works through to more recent sculptures exploring symbolic figures and organic forms, the selection will offer an insight into the poetic imagination that underlies Lyons’ practice to this day.
