Tau Lewis is a Jamaican-Canadian sculptor whose work combines natural and synthetic materials to create simulations of living organisms. Lewis’ self-taught practice is rooted in healing personal, collective and historical traumas through labour. She employs methods of construction such as hand sewing, carving and assemblage of found and repurposed materials to build portraits. Her material practice is influenced by her surrounding environment, and the conceptual framework of her sculptures investigates black identity and agency, memory and recovery, and African diaspora.

Special thank you to Cooper Cole Gallery, Toronto.
