    MARK LEWIS
    March 12–April 2, 1988

    The exhibition Burning¬†by Mark Lewis consists of a series of eight colour composite images, each image accompanied by separately framed, colour-coded text. The images are composed of fragments of illustrations from glossy magazines. In Lewis’ words, “The work uses common popular photographic imagery, placing it in narrative configurations in order to suggest and construct certain amorous possibilities. The series attempts to trace and complicate the relationship between images, fantasy and masculine desire, and does so by making critical discourses dirty.”
