Biography:
Born in 1968 in London, Andrew Lewis lives and works in Argenton Sur Creuse. His work is present, among others, by the following institutions:Arts Council Collection, Londres; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; FRAC Alsace, Sélestat; FRAC Limousin, Limoges. Exhibitions : Les filtres harmoniques, Art:Concept (2012); Archi-Peinture, Le Plateau/Frac Ile-de-France, Paris & Camden Arts Center, London (2006).

Andrew Lewis develops the idea of interaction between characters both human or sculpted and their immediate environment, which tends to create a group dynamic. His works show all the innovation and ingenuity that we’ve had to use to develop within the bosom of society which in turn has begun to function like an organism abolishing its own privileges, thus breaking the codes that it had eagerly created not so long before. Andrew Lewis attends to make an original synthesis between the painterly transposition of calm and hieratic characters and time in its most fleeing, mobile and evolving aspects. His figures evoke Robert Musil’s ones. They are men and woman without evident “qualities” who, once freed of the sediments of their own milieu and epoch, become extremely sensitive to all experiments and act as a sort of trans-historic multiple conscience.
