Christiane Lyons completed her BFA at the University of California, Berkeley and her MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles.  At UCLA she studied and worked as an assistant to Elizabeth Peyton and subsequently John Baldessari, who became an important influence upon her and mentor to her.  

A Good Line: Can’t Live Without You is Lyons second show with the gallery, and like the previous one, it is based around the notion of the Rorschach ink blot, an image of bilateral symmetry, which the artist uses as a compositional device.  The artist recontextualizes imagery drawn from a variety of source material in her paintings, art historical in the case of these new works (Warhol, Manet, Ernst, Goya etc).
