On Friday, May 20th, the David B Smith Gallery in Denver, Colorado opened the latest solo show by Kris Lewis. This new show features 12 new paintings by this contemporary master. Lewis has a style of paintings that is very reminiscent of Mannerist painters from the late 1500’s. While those painters chose to distort and manipulate the figures and the scenes they occupied to a great extent, Lewis’ figures and paintings contain subtle distortions, so that the viewer would be drawn in not only by the emotion but by the feeling of something slightly odd about the works. He achieves this with perfect consistency, and never ceases to amaze with every new painting released. Take a look at the preview images here, and then over to the galleries homepage for the full show.
