In Nathan Lewis’s paintings, things are always falling apart or coming together. In almost every situation, his buildings, people, skeletons, the stormy weather itself - all his subjects - are assigned a restless fate. It’s a sensibility that is like a camera flash catching the chaotic motion of an event and then freezing it in space. In this way his concerns feel less like that of a painter who is concerned with surface and more like that of a sculptor who is concerned with issues of space and time.  it’s clear he is engaged in a conversation with art history as much as he is with crisis.
