Richard Lewer’s 2020, is a reflective work that speaks of our shared condition and serves both as a snapshot and a summary of the year’s redirection. At the same time, it invites us to think about what is hidden or yet to come in the aftermath of the pandemic. The masked figures are silenced, motionless and yet simmering with a palpable anxiety that is intensified by the field of thousands of lines that give the picture its dissident energy. This is a powerful drawing loaded with portent and very much of its times; part observation and large part pithy and incisive social commentary.
