Anna Liber Lewis is a London-based painter who has earned numerous accolades for her vibrant and bold works, including the Griffin Art Prize in 2017. Lewis studied Fine Art at the prestigious Central Saint Martins before completing her MA at Royal College of Art and has exhibited widely across London. Lewis’s work is often concerned with ideas surrounding female sexuality and seeks to challenge the frequent representation of women by men.
Colour and shape are central to her works, but Lewis adamantly resists classification. Her interests lie in the complex relationship between the desire for personal autonomy and the need to find a space or structure within that autonomy. Her works shift between what is seen and what is felt, blurring the lines between control and surrender.
