Susanne Carmack

David Carmack Lewis has lived and painted in Portland, Oregon since 2000. Originally from Virginia, he studied art at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and in Cardiff, Wales UK.

David’s richly colored oils on canvas have evolved from thought provoking figure studies in symbolically rich scenarios to evocative nocturnal landscapes. He says, “at night colors either vanish into darkness or are transformed by the light source illuminating them. My recent work explores the variety and contrasts of different light sources and their interplay with darkness, while I continue to pursue my interest in narrative image making.”

His paintings are in numerous private collections across the country and have been exhibited in Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Michigan, New Mexico and South Africa.
