Sin Sin Fine Art is pleased to present “Deluge“, a solo exhibition of new works by American artist Rick Lewis. This particular body of mixed media on canvas relates to actual events, stories, legends, and mythologies centered around Great Floods both current and historic in the artist’s own culture and many others.

Texas born painter Rick Lewis grew up in the Gulf of Mexico Coastal region in Texas. He now lives and works in New York, New York. His influences range from Joan Miro, Antoni Tapies, Paul Klee, Alberto Burri, Texan visionary painter Forrest Bess and Far Eastern calligraphy. He has exhibited in Texas, New York, Hong Kong, and Indonesia. His work belongs to numerous public and private collections throughout the world, and has appeared in international periodicals and publications.

“All cultures have their own legends and mythologies of Great Floods both real and imagined. Primitive man in Egypt regulated their entire lives entirely by the cycle of the Nile’s stages. The Chinese tell of the heroic Da Yu and how he, with the help of 20,000 workers and dogged perseverance over 13 years, saved China from the Great Flood. The Hopi believe that Spider Woman helped them enter the current Fourth World by cutting giant reeds and floating their people atop raging waters toward safety on a mystical island. The Hindu have their own story of Manu, who by befriending one tiny fish, was saved from certain death and survived with “a few seeds of life” to repopulate the earth. I have always loved these stories and felt that they resonate with this body of work.”

What myths and legends may arise from the floods that we as a people have endured personally, socially, and economically in our recent history? Terrible waters wreak havoc on the Earth, but new life begins again out of the detritus and destruction. There is beauty in that.” — Rick Lewis
