About the work

Jubilee Garden is one of many study drawings produced to inform one painting, The Great Day, a 33 x 2 meter painting that was exhibited at Edel Assanti last summer.

About the artist:

Born 1980, Dale Lewis lives and works in London. Graduated from BA Fine Art, London Guildhall University (2002); and MA Fine Art, University of Brighton (2006).

Lewis’ paintings and drawings depict his own experiences, painted / drawn from memory. He focuses on subjects drawn from his immediate surroundings – the reality of contemporary urban life. His work alternates between observations of society, from the mundane to the extreme (social immobility, 9-5 jobs, consumerist excess, binge drinking, gang violence) and scenes inspired by his personal life – family dinners, gay clubs, close friends, lovers. Lewis’ compositions are inspired by renaissance and religious paintings, through which his work seeks a classical spiritual transcendence for ordinary people in day-to-day existence.

Lewis’ work can be found in public and private collections including Fundacion AMMA, Mexico; The Arsenal, Montreal; David Roberts Art Foundation, London; Saatchi Gallery, London; Zabludowicz Collection, London; and Rema Hort Mann Foundation, New York.

Recent exhibitions include Friends and Friends of Friends, Schlossmuseum, Linz (2020); Crowd, Hannah Barry Gallery, London (2020); The Great Day, Edel Assanti, London (2020); Entrance Installation, Times Square Space, 1500 Broadway, New York (2018); Parallel Realities, Galerie Division, Montreal (2018); Iconoclasts: Art out of the Mainstream, Saatchi Gallery, London (2017); and Mixed Signals, Christian Larsen Gallery, Stockholm (2016).

Awards and residencies include Art Athina Residency, Athens (2019); Arsenal Montreal Residency, Montreal (2018); and Zabludowicz Collection Residency, New York (2017).

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
