Keith Lewis: Kinetic Cool

Paradise City steps outside the box in Keith Lewis‘ Art Buzz feature, to present this interview in a question-and-answer format. Lewis’ kinetic jewelry in mica, gems and a range of colors is popular not just for its beauty. These earrings, pins, bangles and pendants are great fun, swing while you walk, and also make terrific gifts.

“Anyone who knows me realizes that my memory is truly awful. My earliest memory is sticking a fork in a 220 volt outlet in Italy, but my next earliest memory is really the foreshadowing of my career. I was a pre-schooler standing next to a community garden in Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania. I was holding my Dad’s cigar box open, looking at the golden corn silk and tiny bits of broken glass I had collected. I remember thinking it was like a treasure of gold and gems. I guess I was hooked then.”


Peiliang Jin: The Fine Points of Serenity
Landscape painter Peiliang Jin looks for harmony in the natural world. He communicates his vision via the medium of watercolor painting on paper; he narrates his journey by leading us through luminous visionary landscapes, with rolling rivers and meadows and fanciful trees that seem to be dancing in a celestial ballet.

Alexandra Geller: Setting a Splendid Table
