A sculpted indigenous garden featuring more than 60 works by Dylan Lewis.


‘Shapeshifting’, an essay by Laura Twiggs

‘Where does animalkind end and humankind begin? What of the wild and the primitive within? In exploring these tantalising enigmas, Lewis searches wilderness, myth and ancient belief systems for inspiration, meaning and answers.’

'The Rising': Ian McCallum

One day your soul will call to you with a holy rage.
‘Rise up!’ it will say…

Stand up inside your own skin.
Unmask your unlived life…
feast on your animal heart.
Unfasten your fist…
let loose the medicine in your own hand.
Show me the lines…
I will show you the spoor of the ancestors.
Show me the creases…
I will show you the way to water.
Show me the folds…
I will show you the furrows for your healing.
‘Look!’ it will say…
the line of life has four paths –
one with a mirror, one with a mask,
one with a fist, one with a heart.

One day, your soul will call to you with a holy rage.

Shapeshifting

Christie’s, 8 King Street, St. James’s, London, United Kingdom

Auction Results:

In spite of turbulent economic times, the Dylan Lewis: Shapeshifting auction on Tuesday, September 10th was a huge success.

The Christie’s London King Street sale room was packed with art collectors and buyers, with more joining from 7 different countries around the world via internet and telephone bidding. 100% of the lots offered were sold amidst fierce international bidding, and prices largely exceeded expectations with many sculptures selling above their high estimates.

This success would not have been possible without the dedication of the Christie’s sales team, the Dylan Lewis Studio team and the enthusiastic support of Dylan Lewis collectors around the world.

The photograph’s below document the Exhibition, the ‘Christie’s Lates’ event, as well as the installation of Dylan’s work on St. James Park, London.

Dylan was the keynote speaker at a ‘Christie’s Lates’ event, which took place the evening before the auction. With over 1000 guests in attendance, this event was one of their busiest so far in the series.
