Read our Artist in Focus blog post on Cathy Lewis

Cathy says: Most of my work is concerned with ideas around social culture and history. My practice has the tradition of sculpting with clay at its core and casting in traditional materials, bronze or marble dust.

I like this direct link to the past, but the ideas in the work are very much related to the modern world. I often combine several ideas in one piece, each influencing the outcome of the work. For me, art is more about questions than answers. I have been exhibiting work since 1989.
