Tim Lewis: Beneath Above

7 September – 1 October 2016

Flowers Gallery


A series of mobile sculptures, continuing Lewis’s signature use of machines to endow objects with functions and qualities that extend beyond their natural limitations.

The title Beneath Above suggests a fluidity between two oppositional states, or a process of transition. Assemblages of inert materials such as steel, wood and wire appear to take on a life of their own through Lewis’s mechanical interventions, at times autonomously whirring into existence, or responding to the operation of the viewer. Each sculpture is characterised by the performance of a sequence of repetitive actions.
