Seaworthy

Artist: Josie Lewis
Title: Great Expectations
Medium: found paper and resin
Year: 2008

With great swirling bands of multi-colored paper in what seems like 3-D, Lewis has created an almost organic sculpture behind glass. The swirls of highly textured, seamless yet chunky and strategically placed paper has both a beginning and an end point, but its not discernible to the human eye. The colors of turquoise, pink and muted shades of grey and purple combine together to give you a feeling of infinity, of timelessness. This is one in a series, and I was really impressed by her visual capacity to engage and at the same time produce a real decoratively appealing work. Really great.
