‘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.’
During the month of October two private exhibitions of Dylan Lewis’s latest sculpture were held in Germany.
The first event took place in a historic venue owned by Prof. Dr. Dr. Peter Löw in the old town quarter of Munich, kindly hosted by The European Heritage Project. As part of this event, Dylan was interviewed by journalist Dietlinde Behncke.
The exhibition then moved to the countryside, where it was generously hosted by the Schumann Family at their private residence overlooking Lake Starnberg. Dr. Michael Schumann gave the opening address and Caroline Schumann then interviewed the artist.
These events were well received with some sculpture editions selling out.
Both exhibitions featured Dylan’s recent work which explores the notion of Untamed Nature within the human psyche.
A unique sculpture titled “Homage to Löwenmensch” was created by the artist for the exhibition. This work was inspired by the Löwenmensch (Lion-man) sculpture carved over 40,000 years ago, and found in the Hohlenstein-Stadel cave not too far from Munich.
