Kris Lewis paints fiction. His portraits are of characters — mysterious, unreal figures often the amalgamation of multiple sources. They are strong, yet fragile; happy, sad, seductive, isolated. There is a story behind each portrait that only the artist knows, but the figures convey an emotion, spark the imagination, and tell a tale that manages to speak universally to each viewer.
Jenny Morgan makes portraiture challenging, cool and now by fucking it up. A graduate of the School of the Visual Arts and studio assistant to Marilyn Minter, Morgan is forging her own artistic path.
