Weekly Artist Focus: Scott Lewis

Artist Scott Lewis is fascinated by what lays beneath the surface of the shiny, clean and accepted.  The carnival that once was new and bright but is now creaky and run down.  The faded elegance of an old tuxedo being worn by one who believes “that is the proper way to dress“.  The surgically enhanced body.  Happy paint chipping away to reveal a rusted damaged body.  Growing up one of my influences was the transparent anatomy pages that when flipped, revealed blood and muscles intense and brilliant.

 

Lewis takes a similar approach in creating his subjects by wanting to expose what they are thinking, their urges and how they see themselves by presenting them inside out.  Who they are becomes how they look and how they interact with each other.  And they are all desperate for the good times that will eventually lead to disappointment.
