DYLAN LEWIS: Apex
May 6 – May 26, 2021
Everard Read takes pleasure in presenting this exhibition of new Cat sculptures by Dylan Lewis.
After a period focusing his attention on the human condition Lewis has with this collection circled back to the subject that has long entranced collectors of figurative bronzes. Lewis’s felids, from the first bronzes in the early 1990s, have interrogated the essence of perhaps the most beautiful and graceful of all terrestrial creatures. His sculptures of leopards, tigers, cheetahs, lions and domestic cats are informed by an ancient lineage honed through millions of years of inexorable environmental change. Structure and an economy of lithe movement camouflage an ability to focus awesome explosive energy. Such is the nature of the animal that has obsessed this very rare sculptor from his formative years.
This exhibition of bronzes from miniatures to monumental, will remind collectors internationally that Dylan Lewis is the most profound animalier of his time.
