I can’t think of another artist whose work seems to teeter so carefully on the knife’s edge between states. You emerge from Lewis’ show feeling like you’ve been in a grotto made out of bottle caps and tinfoil, some deeply private offering. Did you have fun at the play? What a question to ask. As long as you were watching it, you were somewhere totally innocent of money or popularity or cool or cachet. How rare that turns out to be. How precious. —Helen Shaw, Divers Alarums, 2016
