Richard Lewer

September - November 2008

Lewer describes himself as a contemporary social realist. He is creatively motivated by his personal responses to and active engagement with his subject matter, through research and participation. His previous projects have explored war, crime, religion, mental illness, euthanasia, death in custody and sporting failure. He aims to make work that interrogates what is complex and troubling about our society; but as objectively as possible – without a moralising tone.
