Senior Exhibition 2004 Robert Lewis
      The understanding of my art and its significance in my life is deepened by each thought in its creation. My work recaptures my fondness of the ephemeral joys of my childhood, creating a connection with those memories and my present self. By doing this, I bring the viewer into the past while bringing my past into the viewer’s present. This allows viewers to relate thoughts and memories of their own to the piece itself.

      When creating a piece of art, I like to utilize certain techniques and materials that will be uniquely appropriate to that particular piece. This adds to the overall feeling I intend the viewer to experience. My imagery is chosen to celebrate sensuality and sexuality while embracing humor, beauty and kitsch. When these relations between the viewer and the piece occur, I feel I have made a connection with the viewer and that they take away with them an understanding of who I am and the connection that has to my art.
