Jill Lewis: Sociable Species

September 26, 2020 - October 10, 2020

Jill Lewis, Same News Different Views, 2020. Acrylic on canvas, 102 x 102cm. Courtesy: the artist and Anthea Polson Art, Gold Coast.

Curious hybrid creatures, schematic figures and plant forms advance and submerge amidst linear markings and colourful geometric shapes personify Jill Lewis‘ musings about the worlds within and around her. Akin to the intent and pictorial techniques employed by primitive and ancient cultures, the scenarios are invested with symbolism.

“As in Egyptian frescoes, the size and position of the characters can be representative of their significance in my own imagined stories,” Lewis explains. The totemic-like personages and the narratives they inhabit aren’t the result of preconceived ideas. Instead, they arise intuitively from a canvas filled with gestural markings and colours.

The gallery is open and adhering to social distancing measures.

The exhibition can also be viewed online. View the exhibition here.
