About the Artist

Sage Lewis mixes handmade papers, paint and thread, juxtaposing formal elements of fabric and architecture in quiet abstraction. Linear plans for buildings and bridges are sewn delicately, made transparent, buried, and erased. In her own words, "I choose to depict architectural forms using flexible, delicate materials like thread and paper to serve as a metaphor for ideas about strength and weakness. The assumption that these forms are inherently strong and that thread and paper are weak, is a concept I enjoy challenging in both the form and content of the work." Sage Lewis lives and works in Portland, Maine. Her work has been featured in recent shows at Whitney Art Works in Portland. Please visit for more information.
