About this Exhibit
For Denver artist Stacy Lewis, energy and spirit are reflected in vibrant acrylic colors. Her exuberant show, ColorVision: Energy and Spirit on Canvas, will feature nearly 15 works by Lewis, each distinctly celebrating spectrums of color.
By leveraging the inherent power of color – its vibration and its energy – Lewis blends acrylics with mixed media to capture the essence of an emotion, person, place or object. “Prior to starting a piece,” says Lewis, “I gain an immediate sense of what the subject represents in my mind, body and soul. I become less interested in the accuracy of translating the subject and more interested in how the blending of colors will evoke the unique expression of a subject internally and externally.” In the end, Lewis uses color to create a sense of movement, dynamism and vibrancy while inviting viewers to develop their own connections to each canvas.
Painting has been a part of Lewis’ life since childhood, growing up in a family of artists and using art as a form of personal expression as her own life has evolved. ColorVision: Energy and Spirit on Canvas is a manifestation of the artist’s vision at this celebratory point in her life.
