Works by Andrew Lewicki

View all 8 Photos

Juxtaposition is a comedic device, but perhaps never used to the extent as demonstrated by Andrew Lewicki’s creations. The irony between representation and the represented are tickling to the intellect and common perception of daily objects, commonplace sightings, and cultural symbols. The Oreo Manhole Cover transposes America’s favorite sandwich cookie into a context known for its lack of appeal. (And yet… the formal similarity is there.) The Louis Vuitton motif is reduced to patterns on a crispy carb, not a classy clutch. On a larger scale, the concrete Legos are not for children’s play, while the seemingly fun wooden structure XY2 is mathematically instructive to young minds. Let Lewicki’s sense of humor be a lesson for all of us in viewing the hackneyed life.
