Born in Rollis, Minnesota, the Colorist Edward R. Lewis enjoyed a long career as a painter, prolific in watercolour, oil, and acrylic. He also dedicated his life to teaching the arts and spent the majority of his artistic career as an art professor holding positions at Sioux Falls College, Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and at Central Missouri State University (now the University of Central Missouri) in Warrensburg, Missouri. His vibrant canvases often ask the viewer to make a quantum leap in perception, as his colours are the vehicle by which he describes light and space. In this captivating acrylic on canvas, the artist Edward R. Lewis (1914-1992) masterfully blends the symbolism of African masks, and primitive arts with simple geometrical shapes, colours, and lines to explore themes of identity, transformation, emotions, and spirituality.
