  • Efail Ddu, contemporary modern art by Welsh artist Elfyn Lewis, 26cm x 12cm, acrylic on board

Efail Ddu


Is it a painting or a sculpture? Elfyn has carved the base of the work around the heavy layers of overflowing paint, yet the work hangs absolutely flat on the wall.

Animated dynamic energy fills the sumptuous contemporary paintings of Welsh artist Elfyn Lewis.

These captivating painted surfaces in strong atmospheric colour, tonal variation and emphatic gesture contain a multitude of textures, sweeps, ripples, edges and colour screens. Transparency meets opacity, luminosity contrasts with solidity, and the movement of paint through layering, pushing and dragging feels active and exciting.

A truly Welsh modern artist, Elfyn Lewis is repeatedly delving into his memory and feeling for the powerful and resonant landscapes of Wales; he spent his early life in North Wales where the dramatic environment of Eryri (Snowdonia) became a defining motif.
