Celebrated international artist Lyle XOX showcases his work at home
Lyle Reimer has a unique way of looking at the world. What one person might see as garbage, Lyle sees as inspiration for a work of art. He creates intimate masks using unused and discarded items. But don't let that fool you into thinking they look like garbage. These masks are high fashion. They've even been displayed in the iconic Bergdorf Goodman store in Manhattan. Lyle's roots are a little more rural than that, though. He grew up in the small hamlet of Wymark in southwestern Saskatchewan. Right now he's back in the province putting the finishing touches on his first ever Saskatchewan exhibition. He speaks to host Shauna Powers ahead of his Art Gallery of Swift Current show.
