156 Studio Projects is pleased to present Night Life a series of oil paintings by Sean Lewis focused on the fading of a summer day, when street lights glow, and the air thickens. As winter extends its grip, these paintings are a warm reprieve – it is the season of cottage getaways, camping trips, bike rides, and beers in the park. A love letter to imminent summer with fantastical representations of North American landscapes, tinged with an eeriness. They illustrate a place unhinged from the one we know, giving a surreal undercurrent to familiar places. The monotone of Winter has ended, and Summer is whispering back to you.
