One wouldn’t immediately recognize the origin of the alluring multi layers photograph art by innovative artist GERRIE LEWIS. In fact, as you explore the photographic layers, the last thing you would recognize is “urban decay”, represented in her elaborate current artworks.
Throughout world travels, Lewis’s focuses her photographic eye on the less obvious and hidden elements of a city; dying trees, trash, graffiti, and decay. Fascinated by Earth’s magnificent beauty, Lewis also photographs the “wonders of nature”, her true inspiration and source of artistic color palette. Digitally with thoughtful consideration, Lewis commingles the conflicting subjects together until transformed into bold and beautiful works of art sending a positive message that humans and nature do co-exist….a delicate balance.
“I see beauty in everything, even something discarded. It excites me to transform what others might think is ugly and unwanted into some as desirable as contemporary art”.
