George Lewis, New Zealand Member Since April 2008 Artist Statement I grew up in Dorset, England before emigrating to New Zealand with my family in 2001.
I recently completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts degree at the University of Auckland, 2013. I have been passionate about photography for the past five years and more recently began digitally manipulating my photographs.
My biggest inspiration is nature and you will find that the vast majority of my artworks contain some aspect of it. Looking through my work you will see a number of landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes, some realistic and some edited by myself to create a whole new artwork with a totally different mood and feeling. You will also find quite a few abstract pieces, some of which are made abstract in-camera (whilst taking the original photograph) and some are highly edited by myself.
My guiding principle is to make quality images that I think look good and that I would like to have hanging on my wall.
I hope you enjoy looking through my images and if you have any queries please leave me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Also, if you like an image of mine but would like me to change something about it like the color or crop, please leave a comment on that image telling me what you want changed and I'll do my best to upload an image that matches your request in a timely fashion.
