Lakeside Camera Photoworks Mural
Kyle Nugent’s mural “Carnival of Time” intermingles a day and night scene with abstract shapes to exemplify the polarities and chaos of nature and its details. The mural also references Kyle’s personal experiences traveling abroad over the last eight years: the coyote being the traveling hunter, and the blue jay the homebound flyer.
Kyle Nugent was born in New Orleans, grew up in the Covington – Mandeville woods, and spent most weekends fishing in Grand Isle. While traveling through Southwest Asia and the Americas, Nugent integrated the study of volcanology with pre-Colombian civilizations and ethnobotany into his painting. For Nugent, painting possesses great healing power, functioning as the cartography of an indeterminate reality.
