annie lewis printmaker

The printmaking process invigorates the dialogue I continually seek with composition. I ask abstract forms to reveal themselves - to express their energy, their nature, and their imperfections. Shapes, lines, colors, and textures become characters interacting on the page. They create relationships and they begin to tell their own stories.

Largely influenced by the Asian aesthetic, I respect a gestural stroke of black. In that gesture, beauty and emotion unite. Positive and negative can thrive. Power can be in the simple and grace can linger in the quiet.
