Artist Statement: Leah Lewman is an artist whose current body of work combines installation and 2D works to mimic, but also stretch and manipulate the relationship between a viewer and their surroundings. The focus is on the architectural structure of the window, situating the viewer apart from a natural “beyond.”
Leah Lewman has exhibited her work nationally, recently exhibiting her thesis work at the University of Arizona Museum of Art; Landscape at Escape Velocity, a 2015 Exhibition at Fine Arts Complex 1101 in Tempe, AZ; and the 2016 Wet Paint MFA Biennial Exhibition at the Zhou B. Art Center in Chicago, IL. Lewman received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting in 2013 from Salisbury University in Salisbury, MD. In May 2017, she received an MFA in 2D Studio Art at the University of Arizona, Tucson, where she served for three years as Instructor of Record. She currently lives and works in Ellicott City, MD.
