Artwork for Ciara Lewis
My practice is constantly evolving, driven by experimentation with new ideas and processes as well as acting as form of diary or story driven responses to my environment. I believe in utilising a wide variety of reclaimed media and I am creatively inspired by my surrounding rural environment as well as my travel diaries.
My work is an integral part of who I am and acts as one of the vital tools I use to interpret the world around me.
I am a painter with an interest in mixing media and creating textural work in many and varied formats, sizes and materials. Recently I have expanded my practice to include sculptural forms. My work retains a strong landscape narrative.
i work from my studios at The Old School but have worked facilitating school and community workshops over many years. I want to start masterclasses and an artists studio hub from the school in 2022.
