Lew Lott Dancers

Lew Lott transfers the realism of photography into an illusion created by painting. He captures the moment but lets the viewer finish the story. Using his photography as a reference, he paints with a mixture of oil, acrylic and iridescent paint applied to aluminum. The viewer can explore the surface of the work to see that it is an illusion – the magic of painting. Lew draws inspiration from the Baroque period with a bit of Francis Bacon included. The exhibition will be in the central gallery.
