Jersey-born and based artist Kris Lewis paints portraits rich in detail and expression. His latest series, currently being exhibited at the David B. Smith gallery in Denver, Colorado, is a collection of paintings that features a diverse array of pensive and attractive images of people set against foreboding backdrops.

Kris Lewis's skill lies in his ability to have each of his paintings reflect the kind of emotion one would expect to find in a photograph. It's clear that this is an important quality to him. "As I begin a painting the subject physically, emotionally and spiritually reveals itself to me," reads the official Kris Lewis artist statement. "Each brushstroke speaks to the subsequent stroke, carrying out a dialogue, linking my subject and me as if we were meeting for the first time."

His images strike the viewer as both forlorn and oddly romantic. His rich attention to detail make his paintings pop and stand out. The Kris Lewis exhibit at the David B. Smith gallery runs from May 20th to June 18th, 2011.
