MFA candidate Claire Lewis Evans has been a whirlwind of activity. Lewis Evans was awarded Best Three-Dimensional Artwork for her paper and bamboo sculpture Messenger and for her paper and reed sculpture Satellite in the online exhibition Chasing the Light (Finding the Shadow) at the virtual Still Point Art Gallery. She presented her MFA thesis exhibition, Passages, at Northport’s The Grocery in April. The sculptural works featured in this show reflect Lewis Evans’ interest in material, process and time. Her explorations of form and space allow her to help create the universe, shaping matter and experience as the work unfolds. While her work can be approached by the viewer simply as abstract sculpture, it is deeply informed by her longstanding interest in spirituality and the environment, as well as more recent reflections on the fragility and resiliency of art and life in the face of the unknown.
