Lyons Wier Gallery

Lyons Wier Gallery aims to champion contemporary artists who bring a fresh and interpretative spirit to their chosen genre. The gallery specializes on what we call "Conceptual Realism." For us, "Conceptual Realism" far exceeds the pictorial aspect of representational painting. Our artists' deftness of hand is buttressed by their integral use of color, content and iconography bringing about a broader conceptual aspect to their naturalistic and allegorical compositions.

to challenge and dissect society's representation of black masculinity in popular culture today. The title, All DatGlitters Ain't Goals, is an obvious play on the quote from William Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, "all that glitters is notgold." As with all of Pecou's exhibitions, the artist's masterful word play is the root of his exhibition.

Extrapolating from a broad range of popular culture resources, Pecou sifts through rap music, hip-hop culture and mass media to provide a visual reference that exaggerates and calls into question the persona and "hype" that serves as a bar upon which an entire segment of today's society measures their worth. The "thug life" lifestyle encompassing exotic cars,"iced out" jewelry, sexy women, drugs and countless non-culpable accounts of criminal exploits litter the lyrics of popular songs and music videos, ultimately infecting the overall perception...
