This March, Corey Helford Gallery is pleased to present “The Absence of Light”, a solo exhibition of new paintings by internationally-recognized tattoo artist Henry Lewis.
The San Francisco-based artist returns to Corey Helford Gallery to unveil his second solo show, featuring a dramatic new series of figurative oil paintings. Combining classical painting techniques with tattoo-influenced imagery, Lewis infuses his portraiture with loose expressive strokes and raw depth.
For “The Absence of Light”, Lewis’ new collection of works represents a catharsis for extraction and reflection based on his fixations from adolescence and family. A mirror of human emotions tied to memories of the present and past, Lewis draws from his personal experiences creating timeless narratives and mythological environments filled with heros, icons of beauty and historical artifacts. Lewis adds, “These self-made fantasy scenes, though dark at first glance, react with humor towards the past, free of apathy, and curiosity of the future.”
Open to the public, the reception for “The Absence of Light”, will take place on Saturday, March 19 from 7 to 10pm and will be in conjunction with “Dreamhome Heartaches”, a solo exhibition of new works by Adam Wallacavage. Both exhibitions will be on view until April 6, 2011.
