The following pieces by artist Jeff Lewis remind me several beloved activities: cloud gazing and playing with buttons. If you stare long enough you see different images and patterns. They shift slowly after a while, taking on new manifestations of the imagination. Much like the dots in your eyes after a bright flash of a forced photo. Only these don't fade away after several minutes, but linger encouraging the viewer to let time stand still in a dream like trance. The abstract and seemingly random placement of circles feels like a pile of buttons strewn across some sort of surface. I feel a sudden urge to organize and categorize. To arrange and rearrange based on hue, size, shape... a glimpse of OCD tendencies.
Back to work.
