Dot art: Sea – A Collection of Work by Andrew Lewis

12 March- 20 April

Sea” is the first complete body of work by Liverpool-born artist, Andrew Lewis, who is based at Victoria Mill Art Studios in Congleton. Largely self-taught, he has been painting for the last 5 years. dot-art is delighted to host his first solo show, a celebration of the beauty, energy and enduring attraction of the sea.

The collection, painted 2010-11, comprises a wide range of evocative images of coastal life, from the exhilaration of surfing and swimming underwater, to lazy summer holidays at Formby; from the warmth of Cote D’Azur, to cold water clashing on the rocks in Cornwall. Coupled with the range of images, the media varies – acrylics, oils, pastels and charcoal – each has been chosen to depict each scene in a joyful, vibrant way. Andrew continues:“As with most kids, I lived for the summer holidays – especially the time we had at the beach. We were lucky enough to spend weeks in a VW Camper Van in North Wales or Cornwall; I still love spending as much time as I can at the coast. I hope the positive feelings I have for being by the sea, which I know many people share, are conveyed in this slightly random collection of images. Each painting has a story and a lot of my character wrapped up in each one .”

The exhibition is open to the public from 12-6pm Monday to Friday and by appointment, at dot-art, 16 Queen Avenue, Castle Street, Liverpool, L2 4TX. Please call 0845 017 6660 or see for more information or to make an appointment. All work is for sale and admission is free.
