This book edition was conceived as a facsimile of a unique sketchbook by Spencer Lewis, which was formed in the wake of a studio water leak. Initially blank and only meant to protect and absorb moisture from various digital prints integral to Lewis’ painting process, its white pages accidentally took on inky patterns and effects. In reaction, he made notational drawings onto the prints and sketchbook pages as one picture on each spread. Akin to his paintings, you see Lewis additively recording connections and material contrasts in each iteration; he allows his sources to be at once elevated and debased, a paradox implied and embedded in his painting process.
