Ruark Lewis is a writer and artist whose work ig­nites new ways of think­ing about the world through art, in­ves­ti­ga­tion and so­cial en­gage­ment. This mono­graph is the first pub­li­ca­tion of its kind on Lewis and cov­ers three decades of the artist’s out­put of ex­per­i­men­ta­tion, cre­ation and his ex­ten­sive ex­hi­bi­tion and per­for­mance his­tory.

From the out­set, the book en­gages the reader in writ­ten texts by Ian Maclean, James Paull, Dianne John­son, Ben­gitj Ngur­ruwuthun and Paul Carter ac­com­pa­nied by im­ages of Lewis’ works across mul­ti­ple art forms and in­cludes per­for­mance and stu­dio shots, which al­to­gether give un­der­stand­ing and in­sight to the artist’s in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary re­la­tional arts prac­tice. In the fi­nal pages, Paull’s chronol­ogy packs a neat time­line of the artist’s jour­ney in art.
