DANCING WITH ROPE
Chongqing Art Museum (Sichuan Fine Arts Institute Museum)
"Lewis’ way of using rope to create his ink lines is an innovative technique for painting. His ink rope (as opposed to brushwork) combines the baimiao technique of traditional Chinese ink painting and the formal effects of Western printmaking."
