Mitch Lewis Artist Bio:
Mitch Lewis New York, NY - United States STUDIO New York, NY 917-873-6006 [email protected] Mitchell Lewis holds a BA and MA degree in painting from Hunter College of CUNY where artists-lecturers such as Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler and Tony Smith influenced his work. He has spent the last forty years freeing himself from the Minimalist-School of the hard-edge constraints by examining his intuitive nature and focusing on motifs and shapes, which have played a part in his personal and artistic history. Lewis' work explores human sensuality and the relationship between men, women and the environment, yet possesses a hieroglyphic, fun-like quality. Vivid colors and spontaneous gestures invite and frustrate the viewer. His paintings and drawings display an incomparable enjoyment of art. __ SELECTED EXHIBITIONS 2014: Carter Burden Gallery, NY May 29 - June 19 Group Show 2013: Carter Burden Gallery, NY May 30 - July 3, 2013 Solo Exhibition 2005: Jadite Gallery, NY Dec. 1 - Jan. 5 Group Show 1996: The Parish Art Museum, Southampton, NY Sept. 22, - Oct. 20.
