Lanyon’s work focuses on the constant yet seductive ‘disquiet’ that defines our lives now, in contrast to the relative or apparent social certainties of the past. It is an exploration of the climate of social, political and personal anxiety that this engenders. Using a range of materials for both their cultural resonance and ability to echo different stages of human technological development – such as pigment, ink, earth, cloth, clay, bronze, iron and aluminium – the work highlights our diverse, complex and evolving relationships with these key human concerns.
