EXHIBITION OPENING Acts of Painting, William D. Lewis

EXHIBITION OPENING Acts of Painting, William D. Lewis

Painting, Art Show, Drawings/Works on Paper, Mixed Media
The painter's studio and the processes involved in painting are subject to much romanticism and myth. Every painter has been asked "Do you paint in oils?" as if it were a mysterious, magical medium requiring arcane knowledge. And certainly painters are guilty of slyly promoting this belief. Making paintings is a funny business - one minute seeming completely absurd (full of sound and fury, signifying nothing), the next quite possibly heroic (replete and teeming with significance). The works in William Lewis’s ‘Acts of Painting’ grew out of contemplating this spectrum of attitudes, beliefs and feelings associated with life in the studio. Lewis has employed varied and contradictory modes over the two years spent working this vein - from parody to mock heroic, noir-ish melodrama to confessional.
