Dawn's Early Light by Meredith Lewis 32" x 32" Mixed Media on Birch Wood ______________________
A short statement is best summarized by the now retired gallery owner, John Davis.
“Meredith Lewis’ paintings are generally monochromatic expressions of mood, texture and relationship and are reminiscent of the later Abstract Expressionists from the sixties. Using metallic colors, inks, and acrylic washes, Meredith’s works evoke action, movement, and a reference to a machined yet chaotic world. The moody dark paintings appear to be wall sections removed form an industrial past. The paintings which range in size from 24 x 18 inches to 48 x 48 inches are beautifully prepared and clearly communicate the artist’s movement, action, and intentions.” John Davis, Davis & Cline Gallery, Ashland, Oregon
