ALMA|LEWIS is thrilled to present its inaugural exhibition Amani Lewis: Reimagining Care on view October 28, 2021 – January 22, 2022. Lewis debuts a new series of large-scale, mixed-media works on paper, and a capacious wall installation that honor and celebrate the multiplicity and complexities of Black life.
Amani Lewis (b. 1994) is a Miami and Baltimore-based artist whose dynamic, mixed-media paintings foreground their subject’s humanity, agency, and inner resilience. Their creative process incorporates photography, digital collage, screen-printing, and luminous textures into kaleidoscopic, large-scale portraits. Using expansive patterns of pulsating colors, Lewis recognizes the power and beauty in every individual’s story, cumulatively raising their voice for Black and queer communities at large.
