Nancy Haynes and James Lewis
Nancy Haynes’ paintings always take my breath away (Etel Adnan, Paris, November 2017).
Galerie Hubert Winter is pleased to present a selection of paintings by Nancy Haynes, each occupied by a chromatic progression—a broadband in which one color morphs into another, a light shade growing dense and dark. To the poets is a homage to Haynes’ favorite authors and poets, resourced of her inspiration and gratitude. Her paintings are stimulated by literature with horizontal gestures hinting at a reading from left to right. To the poets makes the idea of text and subtext quite literal.
The attribution of language and convergence of an invisible mechanism is inherent part of James Lewis’ works.
Material subjected to entropic, hence temporal processes build layers of surfaces, accumulated one over another and establishes fragile relations between emotional, sensorial and statistical data. Accumulations of layers, networks of tumorous growth, encapsulate and fossilize over soft furnishings. These encrusted strata form domestic scenography’s, which are polluted with sound and odour.
Specifically developed for Art-O-Rama Marseille James Lewis will produce a new series of aluminium works.
Thus, creating a strange poetic proposition for the language and understanding of dissonance.
