Doug(las) Lewis artist/curator
My work investigates people, place and circumstance. It focuses on the contexts of "being" and "work". I am a producer of events as much as I am a maker of objects. I live between China and Canada and am constantly engaged by cultural and social confluences. I am interested in the phenomena of communication - where I am at any given time is a context for art making. Making or finding "props" activate the moments or happenings in my photography, video, sculpture and audio.

I am an independent curator and my practice is to foster collaborative situations with or between artists whose works often become a call-and-responce, within given contexts.

The camera on my phone is like a compass that can read the streets I travel on. Images of everyday objects and situations can become mappings of the societies they are from.
"Lewis' artwork explores relational environments between social and subconscious spaces using a constantly evolving variety of mediums that often include video, photo, audio, sculpture, performance and installation media". -artist Andy Denzler, 2006
