Lewis presents a body of work that explores painting on a variety of substrates.
(Los Angeles) - Edward Cella Art + Architecture is pleased to announce Paint Object, featuring new works by Spencer Lewis. In his debut project with ECAA, Lewis presents a body of work that explores painting on a variety of substrates, including canvas, cardboard and even sculptural forms. Lewis’ paintings, although mostly abstract, contain narrative elements that are often autobiographical. The integration of abstract gestural figures and symbolic elements with text and collage components, drive the hidden tales latent within his work.
Lewis creates hybrid paintings that often utilize multiple media while activating both sides of the canvas. Frequently, Lewis’ paintings break the boundaries of the two-dimensional canvas through the accumulation of contrasting materials and aestheticized signifiers, creating a complex dialog between the object and its surrounding space.
