Cathy Lewis, RA must surely be one of the foremost figurative sculptors at work in the UK today. A graduate of Glasgow School of Art, Falmouth School of Art and the University of the West of England, Cathy has built a reputation for producing exquisite and striking contemporary social commentaries through sculpture.

In Cathy’s own words, “Most of my work is concerned with ideas about culture, social history and identity. I often combine serval ideas in one piece, each influencing the outcome of the work. For me, art is as much about questions as answers.”

Artwork Description

This sculpture by Cathy Lewis draws inspiration from the Greek gods. Hermes is considered the herald of the gods and the protector of human heralds, travelers, merchants, thieves etc. Hermes is often depicted with wings. This sculpture includes this motif by having wings on the boys cap and shoes. Lewis takes a traditional concept then spins it with a modern twist. The concept and final outcome of the sculpture feels as though the gods are disguised to walk among us.
