Abstract or Description

An essay on the work of Simon Lewty (b.1941) for a retrospective of his work held at Leamington Spa Art Gallery and Museum. I interpret his work historically, with reference to the figurative revival in Britain in the 1980s, and specifically, in relation to his unique exploration of writing as a mode of drawing and the way he makes encounters with language and letters (forming a complex drawn surface) into a vivid mode of intersubjective experiencing.
