Years of studying Chinese culture have led New York artist Ross Lewis to develop a distinct visual language by incorporating aesthetic and philosophical sensibilities of Chinese artistic traditions into his installations, paintings and sculpture.

In his recent “Rope Paintings”, the artist departs from his training in the Chinese brush to forge a unique and articulated line using rope and string saturated with ink juxtaposed with collage on paper. This art underscores the creativity that derives from cross-cultural influences.

“The Rope Paintings are a distillation of ideas and visual images, an essential amalgam of deeply personal memories and invented realities, offering a shared set of experiences and situations.” –from the essay Ross Lewis/Synthesis and Amalgam by Elizabeth Reede, 2013.

Concurrent with his practice as a painter, Lewis’ installation work includes temporary and permanent commissions in the US and abroad including: Parallel Motion, a ninety-six foot long mural in Battery Park City, NY, fanscapes, a series of wind-activated circular painted nylon and steel fan sculptures created for Central Park's Belvedere Castle, Dancing in Pink Snow, a mixed-media installation in a 19th century horse stable in Berlin and Urban Intersections, an eighty foot by twenty-four foot high wall mural comprised of 500, 000 pieces of glass and ceramic tile at PS 307 in Queens, NY.
