Georgina Lewis

BCA Studio Resident

Artist Statement

Trained as a sound artist, Georgina Lewis (she/her) works across media crafting pieces that examine dissonance: what tensions and artifacts result when one or more things come in contact. Lewis’ current work references alchemy, nature, and the Anthropocene, using materials such as rain, snow, sand, plastic, and paper to construct images and objects. Lewis works slowly, making gentle change over time, to create magical, therapeutic, and yet provocative reminders that transformation and change can be both possible and beneficial.

Georgina was raised in Pennsylvania and Nova Scotia Lewis and received her MFA from Bard College. She holds undergraduate degrees from SMFA at Tufts University and Franklin and Marshall College. Her work has been presented at numerous venues, including Montserrat College of Art’s Frame 301 Gallery, Boston University’s 808 gallery, Grapefruits Art Space, Portland, OR, Acogedor LA, the Mills Gallery, Gallery 263, AREA CODE art fair, and Boston Cyberarts. She has been a resident at the Millay Colony and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts among others and is a Boston Center for the Arts Studio Resident. Georgina is a Core Member of Fountain Street Gallery in Boston and a former member of the Collision Collective. Her work has been written about in The Boston Globe, Art in America, The Wire, and Afterimage among others.
