ARTIST INFO

About 

Lewis Brander (b. 1995, London) lives and works in London where he studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths College. His first solo exhibition was with Vardaxoglou Gallery London in 2022. In 2023 he was awarded a place on the inaugural Tracey Emin Artist Residency at the Tracey Emin Foundation in Margate UK. 

An observer of the shifts in natural light in both Northern and Southern Europe, the colour of the sky has become a constant reference in Lewis Brander’s paintings since returning to London from Greece. Upon moving to Athens in 2018, the artist became exposed to a new landscape and quality of light. Now working from the top-floor of a disused factory in East London, his studio’s views of the sky have allowed him to sustain this study of light over extended periods.  

On an intimate scale, the paintings depict sunsets, the summit of hills, and charcoal delineations of a tree as fragments of much larger scenes. Returning often to the same subject, the shifts in palette and atmosphere allow for more obvious comparison. In this respect, Brander adopts an almost empirical approach to painting light – employing constants and variables in order to understand what its effects are.
