Nate Lewis

Latent Tapestries

March 1–April 5, 2020

Combining elements of photography, sculpture, frottage, ink, and graphite drawings, Lewis’ intricately carved works on paper reflect his experience as a critical-care nurse and challenge perspectives on race and history.

 

Treating the paper as an organism, he sculpts patterns and textures akin to cellular tissue and uncovers anatomies of photographed subjects.
