The Power of Water

The owner of the George H. Lewis “La Mer Steinway” will at once possess not only a superb Steinway instrument, but also an unparalleled piece of decorative art…and a spiritual homage to our oceans.

This pristine Model M Steinway Grand is tranformed into a unique canvas for internationally acclaimed artist, George H. Lewis' stunning work of art.

The “La Mer Steinway” is an extension of the artist’s exploration of the pull and power of water on humanity’s collective consciousness and emotions.  The paintings that comprise his exhibition, The Consciousness of Water, were conceived as a meditation on the mystical nexus between cosmos, bodies of water, and the human spirit. At once alluring and menacing, George H. Lewis' dynamic depictions of oceans and rivers explore the transformative power of water and the intrinsic reciprocity between our treatment of ecosystems and our collective consciousness.
