Rory Lewis prepares for new exhibition

Posted on Feb 6, 2020

The new portrait exhibition, Selah, will be held at the Wex Photo Video Gallery in London in April.

Inspired by the Hebrew word, often interpreted as a moment of reflection, Selah features previously unseen portraits with a meditative and Renaissance-inspired feel.

Rory Lewis, winner of the 2019 Portrait of Britain Award, has previously had portraits acquired by the National Portrait Gallery.

Speaking of his new exhibition, Lewis said, “With Selah, I have attempted to faithfully recreate the light, atmosphere and tones of classical portrait paintings. It has been my aim throughout the project to reproduce meditative religious scenes, directing my subjects to capture the highest moment of drama, while exposing a quiescent vulnerability or fragility in their character at the same time.”

The exhibition will feature portraits of actors and personalities from both the UK and USA, including James Purefoy, Dame Judi Dench, James Cromwell, Sir Patrick Stewart, Ciarán Hinds, Tony Amendola, Peter Van Norden, Frank Weitzel, Tess Harper, Mark Margolis, Anna Passey, Anthony McPartlin, Declan Donnelly and many more.

Selah will be exhibited at the Wex Photo Video Gallery in Whitechapel, London, from 3 to 30 April.
