Sightings: Erick Swenson
Nasher Sculpture Center; Dallas, Texas
April 14 – September 9, 2012
From the Nasher Sculpture Center:
Rendered with a naturalist’s sensitivity and incredible precision, the works often present fantastic vignettes of animals ensnared in strange, sometimes devastating circumstances, or quietly poetic scenes that evoke the beauty and tragedy of nature, as well as our own human condition. Often shocking in their realism and precise details, the works take months, sometimes years, for the artist to fabricate, making new work by Swenson incredibly rare. For Sightings, Swenson created an installation of new work for the Lower Level Gallery, a space which the artist could tightly control to create the appropriate theatrical setting for experiencing his work.
