Artist Statement

CD Lewis’ lived experience has culminated in the realisation that each person has a life as vivid and complex as your own.
‘THE PHENOMENON OF BEING’ this thought, is the work-ideas that transcend individual identity, reaching for the “nature of existence, the phenomenon of being”.
The works address ideas surrounding the nature of existence; the phenomenon of being, influences and reflections of contemporary culture and society. How our environment affects us and how we affect our environment.
