Dancers by Lew Lott
Lew Lott transfers the realism of photography into an illusion created by paint. He captures the moment but lets the viewer finish the narrative. Using his photography as reference, he paints with a mixture of oil, acrylic and iridescent paint applied to aluminum. The viewer may explore the surface of the work to see that it is an illusion- the magic of the painting. Lew is inspired by the Baroque period with a bit of Francis Bacon included. The exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery.
