Richard Lewer, Last Will and Testament (detail), 2010

Richard Lewer is to feature in the upcoming group exhibition DEATH at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre in NSW, Australia, opening this Friday the 22nd of May at 6pm.

'Art about death typically brings to mind a certain kind of theatricality or a sombre tone, a classic still life with a skull and an extinguished candle, however the contemporary artists in this exhibition are talking about death in unexpected ways. Death has touched everyone and its effect is often life changing. It is a subject with many complexities. It is capable of stirring powerful emotions and actions, meanwhile by definition it is a simple scientific fact of life, “the cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism.”'

Richard's work will feature alongside artists: Declan Apuatimi, England Banggala, Carla Cescon, Ronnie Djanbardi, Simon Gende, Nora Holland, Thomas Munkanomi, Tony Pilakui, Patrick Pound, Clementine Puruntatameri, Tracey Puruntatameri, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Helen Shelley, Laurens Tan and Hayley West.
