Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum is excited to be showing a selection of works on paper, from international artist Howard Lewis during Origami Fold Series. Capturing different qualities of light Lewis maximizes detail allowing the texture and age of each subject to be felt. The synthesis of the photographic elements is a provocative mystery. By changing the nuances of light, Lewis takes traditional subjects and turns them into new visual imagery.
Exhibitions & Education Officer Rebecca Lush said “we are very fortunate to have these works on display in the Gallery & Museum. Lewis has used light to highlight the folds in the paper producing a beautiful series.”
Origami Folds Series explores the artist’s interest in creating an illusion of depth and space. Simultaneously creating the most with the least, subtle — a piece of paper in the light. Lewis is endlessly fascinated with creating new ways to manipulate light so that the subject appears entirely as something else. It is an instinctual reaction when the right composition appears, and he triggers the shutter. Lewis reacts to that moment and hopes others might as well.
