“Recalls Pinter. Very funny and very disturbing.”
- Dan Fox, Frieze Magazine

“I can’t think of another artist whose work seems to teeter so carefully on the knife’s edge between states. You emerge from Lewis’ show feeling like you’ve been in a grotto made out of bottle caps and tinfoil, some deeply private offering.”
- Helen Shaw, TimeOut New York

"Drawing from the hermetic expressionism of Agnes Martin, Gertrude Stein, Samuel Beckett, and others, Lilac creates not merely physical spaces, but imaginary, emotional, and intellective states an audience passes through.”
- Thom Donovan, The Brooklyn Rail
