"Rick Lewis: Jalan"
2006-04-19 until 2006-05-03
Sin Sin Fine Art
Hong Kong, , HK Hong Kong

Sin Sin announces the Hong Kong debut solo exhibition for New York-based American artist Rick Lewis, entitled “Jalan”. The opening reception is on Wednesday April 19, and the exhibition runs through May 3, 2006. Texas born painter Rick Lewis grew up in the Gulf of Mexico Coastal region. He spent countless hours of his youth exploring the woods, marshes, lakes, and rivers that comprise the landscape there. His work is not obviously what one traditionally recognizes as landscape painting. “I am not concerned with creating a specific image of place, but am attempting to evoke the physical and psychological perceptions that occur through my relationship with space and time.”

His influences range from among others, Joan Miro, Antoni Tapies, Paul Klee, Alberto Burri, Texan visionary painter Forrest Bess and Far Eastern calligraphy. He has exhibited in Texas, New York, Hong Kong, and Indonesia. His work belongs to numerous public and private collections throughout the world, and has appeared in international periodicals and publications.

“My current work evolves out my interaction with specific places. In 2002, I spent three months in Bali at the Purnati Center for the Arts, as part of the Artist in Residency Program. This trip made a profound impact on my work and my life as an artist. Much of my time was spent wandering through the rice fields and forests in the northwestern portion of the island.

"My personal record of these 'walks', through writings, photographs, drawings, and films of subject matter that I found there, still serve as a catalyst for my research in painting. The work is obviously not what one traditionally recognizes as landscape painting. I am not concerned with creating a specific image of place, but am attempting to evoke the physical and psychological perceptions that occur through my relationship with space and time.

The title of this exhibit is Jalan, the Indonesian word for 'a walk', 'the path', or 'the way'. The word is symbolic for me in that I tend to see my artistic life as a journey, and what I do along the way – the experimentation, the discovery, the frustration, the compassion, the difficulties, the joy – is exactly what we all do. That is the nature of life, 'the way'. That is painting.”

—Rick Lewis
