Simon Lewty: Terra Incognita
Organised and toured by the Mead Gallery to Nottingham Castle Museum
Mon 16 Nov – Sat 19 Dec 1992
The phrase ‘terra incognita’ is a metaphor for the unknown which at the same time implies a sense of discovery. It is this ambivalence which is at the heart of all Simon Lewty’s work. Profoundly autobiographical and largely confined to one small corner of the Warwickshire countryside, Lewty’s explorations in a land of dreams strike a chord in our own experience. The exhibition brings together paintings and drawings from the last three decades to show the scope and development of his work.
