DYLAN LEWIS, (B.1964)
This lot will be removed to Christie’s Park Royal.… Read more THE PROPERTY OF A GENTLEMAN, FROM BELMONT HOUSE, SUSSEX, INCLUDING A COLLECTION OF DYLAN LEWIS SCULPTURELOTS 46 - 110THE SCULPTURES OF DYLAN LEWIS Dylan Lewis is a second-generation South African artist whose grandparents moved from the United Kingdom to South Africa at the turn of the 19th century. He started his career as a painter and forged a reputation for himself as such before turning his attention to sculpture.  The wilderness is Lewis’s subject whether expressed through his widely known renderings of large wild cat predators, focused animal studies or through his explorations of the human form.  Lewis believes that in large parts of the world our sense of the wild has disappeared and with it, something of deep value. What he seeks to express is the value that lies in wildness - wildness of spirit, wildness of soul. Working from his studio just outside Stellenbosch, Cape Town, he has exhibited his work across the United States of America, Canada, the United Kingdom and in South Africa, becoming widely recognised as one of the world's foremost sculptors of the animal form. The sculptures offered here present Lewis’s ability to capture the innate essence of nature’s predators and prey with thrilling energy and sensitive elegance.
