Biography

Gordon Lewis was born and raised in Regina and later went on to study fine art at the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan. He earned his bachelors degree with a double major in art and economics.

Upon graduation he received a job working as an economist for Environment Canada.  Though he continued to work for them for the next 27 years he consistently maintained a good studio practice in his spare time. In 2002 he retired from economics to pursue his life long love of painting and has been painting full time ever since then.

His first solo exhibition was held at the Assiniboia Gallery in Regina in 2006.  Over the last few years Gordon has appeared in group and solo exhibitions in Western Canada. Gordon paintings hang now in numerous private and corporate collections throughout Canada.

Artist Statement

“Landscape inspires and informs the images I paint. The autumn landscape is a major focus in my work due to the long shadows, warm light and vivid colors which characterize this season. My artistic interest  has recently expanded to include vistas of skies, and the prairie regions of SW Saskatchewan and Alberta, to the foothills and west slope Rocky Mountains in autumn and in winter. In particular, the foothills and mountain regions of SW Alberta will be a major focus of my work for some time to come. Although located in Regina, my numerous annual trips to fly fish and ski in these areas provide ample opportunity for inspiration, photography and sketches upon which to base my paintings. These works will tend to be large in format to do justice to the vastness and majesty of this area."
