‘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.’
In association with Everard Read Johannesburg, Lewis exhibited his animal works at Art London four times, starting in 2000. He returned in 2006 as the featured artist with his female figures, the first time he would show them on the international art stage. Called Transformation, the show at Duke of York’s Headquarters drew considerable interest and attention.
