RHEA LEWIS PHOTOGRAPHY

Warrior Goddess Movement: 

A Healing Photo Journey for Breast Cancer Survivors

Exhibit runs April 1 – 30, 2019

Benefits:


MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER
and
LIGHTHOUSE DRAGONS SOS

The purpose of Rhea’s charity project is being able to help breast cancer survivors see their beauty in a new way, to get comfortable in their own skin, and to redefine and re-connect who they are as woman after their diagnosis. It’s not about showing their scars and the ugly side of cancer, but about forgetting their scars, celebrating their beauty as women no matter what their new body looks like.  The imagery is truly a representation of the beautiful inner light that all women share and it reminds them that the scars don’t define them.

 

 

 

 

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer:

The American Cancer Society has a presence in more than 3,400 communities across the country and is the only organization available 24 hours a day, seven days aweek to help people touched by cancer. Breast cancer is the number one reason people call the Society. When you support Making Strides, you are helping the Society seek better ways to prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing the disease.

Lighthouse Dragons SOS:

Lighthouse Dragons is a dragon boat team composed of breast cancer survivors and their supporters. We promote a healthy and life affirming activity through the sport of dragon boating. Each of us is a powerful example that one can lead a full and active life after a diagnosis of breast cancer.

Learn about Paul’s creative process in the development of his unique artwork and the origins of his very unique style.  The definition of realism takes on a new meaning when the paintings are shaped in perspective because a ‘realistic’ painting in a square or rectangle relies on the acceptance by the viewer that they are looking at an illusion presented to them in an arbitrarily imposed shape. But when a painting is shaped to look like the object represented when seen in perspective, such as a painting of a door – which actually opens and closes like a real door – then the illusion of reality is intensified. Perhaps it would be more accurate to describe this increased realism as ‘supra-realism’.

He presently is exhibiting with De Twee Pauwen, The Hague, The Netherlands and Bel-Air Fine Art, Miami.  Paul has shown in more than 200 Group Exhibitions, including: The 57th ‘Bienale di Venezia’, Italy, 2017 – Bel-Air Fine Art, Paris, France Maddox Gallery, London, Galerie Blondel, Paris, France, Michelle Rosenfeld Gallery, New York City, Scott Richards Contemporary Art, San Francisco, National Centre for Contemporary Art, Vladikavkaz, Russia.  Paul has participated in 36 Solo Exhibitions since 1987 and Over 61 International Art Fairs since 1985. Rotterdam Contemporary, The Netherlands,, Art Karlsruhe, Germany (solo), Moniker, London, Art.Fair Cologne, Germany (Solo shows 2014 – 2015), SCOPE, Basel, Switzerland (Solo show 2013).  https://www.saatchiart.com/PaulC
