Kris Lewis

18 12 2014

Kris Lewis is a Los Angeles-based artist whose influences include Alfonse Bougereau, Andrew Wyeth, Hans Holbein, Albrecht Durer, Hieronymus Bosch, Gustav Klimt, and Jules-Bastien LePage. His reverence for masters of old is apparent in his depiction of the human figure, which he uses as a vector for hidden stories, delicate emotion, and finding truth. His affinity for people-watching also informs his paintings, collecting glances, gestures, miens and hints and channeling them through the canvas for the viewer to share in the experience.

The paintings are filled with stories, the secrets of which seem to lie in images, birds, foxes, butterflies, seas. The central figures have a somewhat dazed look (like deer in the headlights).
