Emblems Of Freedom
Dylan Lewis’s father, Robin Lewis, was a successful sculptor of primarily the bird form. Initially, Dylan preferred painting and drawing to sculpture, but the tragedy of Robin’s premature death changed the young artist’s trajectory forever: Within weeks, he found himself in his father’s studio, attempting to sculpt birds. His earliest works were heavily influenced by Robin’s style. To Dylan, birds were symbols of freedom as he subconsciously sought refuge from an emotionally inhibiting upbringing.
