Echo's artwork shows a way of perceiving daily life that rises above the mundane. It echoes the artist's photographic work which freezes the movement of light into icons of transcendent experience. Echo Lew finds a mysterious link between chance arrangements of hair on paper with the spontaneous gestures of the dancers with lights he captures in his photography.
"From my urban recluse experience, through mixed media works which is influenced by American DIY culture, I strive to express my perception of the inner existence: its simplicity and its profundity. Included in my 3D work are recycled materials such as copper wire, electrical cable and an array of electronic and computer components. The cables conduct electrical power just as humans do. We are conduits— conduits of that Power. We try to emulate it by harnessing electricity to advance our lives."
