Home Fires 03: Dale Lewis

7 - 14 May 2020

 

In this episode of Home Fires, Dale Lewis discusses his painting Basket Case (2020), which portrays his local Wetherspoon's pub, just after Christmas 2019.  In his renderings of London life, Lewis taps into a familiar, quintessentially British artistic tradition of addressing the tough realities of contemporary society and its fringes through a prism of dark humour and allegory.
