Lyell Castonguay is a visual artist whose primary medium is woodblock printmaking. His body of work includes depictions of animals in nature. These subjects are in compositions that insinuate a story that the viewer is left to interpret. Most recently, Castonguay has been employing human-made elements in his prints including, airplanes, helicopters, and submarines. These works explore the relationship between ecological and technological systems and how humans continue to shape the planet in their image.
Castonguay is represented by Mitchell Giddings Fine Arts, Brattleboro, VT, and Brumfield Gallery, in Astoria, OR. His work is part of national and international collections including, the Archille Bertarelli Collection, Milan, Italy, and the New York Public Library, New York, NY.
