Most recently, Lewis has continued his exploration of the untamed in a series of sculpture ‘sketches’. Emotions originally projected onto landscape and animal forms have become increasingly integrated into the artist’s psyche. Masks, wings, claws and horns are gone, and his isolated shamanic figures have transitioned into figure groupings, both masculine and feminine. In some there is an intimate stillness, in others a wild eroticism, and others depict grief and power struggles, their nakedness expressing raw, unrestrained emotion. The full body of new work is due to be launched in 2020.
