|Richard Lewer’s new paintings are about the game of rugby. As to be expected from a New Zealand man living abroad, they are nostalgic, and unapologetically so. Rugby became important to Lewer when he moved to Australia. He sees the game as a connecting force – for his friends, his family, and his nation.|
Lewer’s social realist practice explores stories from the realms of crime, religion and sport. He sees parallels between being an artist and an athlete – both roles rely on endurance.
