Please join The MAC Patrons + Artists Collective for a private studio tour with artist Eric Swenson.
11:00 – 12:30PM
The Cedars, Dallas
Erick Swenson’s installations create scenes of haunting perfection. Inspired by museum exhibits, set design, film special effects, and model making, Swenson crafts every minute detail of his tableaux, creating simulated, highly romantic scenes of that often exceed the ideals of nature. Cast in resin, Swenson’s sculptures don’t exude the expected revulsion of gore, but rather a beatific reverence.
A graduate of the University of North Texas and member of the GoodBad Art Collective, he was recently featured at the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Dallas Art Fair and has exhibited internationally in China, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, and elsewhere. Newsweek called Swenson one of the stars of the Whitney Biennial show in 2004. His work is in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, Modern Art Museum of Ft. Worth, Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Saatchi Collection in London. He is represented locally by Talley Dunn Gallery and in New York City by James Cohan Gallery.
