Origins

 The idea that almost everything we know, love and see every day has been created by stars that died billions of years ago has been explored within Lewis’s practice. The origins series of artworks communicate this knowledge through the use of scientific instruments like the periodic table and chemical elements. Turning each object into an investigation of its links with the outer reaches of the cosmos, the chemical components within and then tracing back their origins to the death of a star. Whilst being informal, the artworks open up discussions and thoughts about how we look at the universe and reaffirm that we didn’t just come from the cosmos but are actively a part of it.
