Bio + Contact
Elyse Lewis is an emerging artist from Montreal’s South Shore. Through the use of photography and text she creates series based on her personal life experiences on themes such as self-identity, intimate relationships, and emotional psychoanalysis. From an honest and vulnerable feminist informed point of view, what she considers as subjective self-documentaries become spaces of dialogue in which complex or taboo subjects are approached. Through printed images, virtual galleries, and books, Lewis is interested in the various forms her stories can be told aesthetically, always at a human scale.
Lewis holds a BFA in Photography from Concordia University (2017). Her work has been shown in galleries such as the VAV and Donald Browne, and has been published online on Washing Dishes as well as self-published in her book Opiate Summer (2016). Lewis was also selected as part of Artch’s exhibition for emerging contemporary art in 2019. She works and resides in Montreal.
