360 Speaker Series: Eric Swenson

Artist

April 28, 2012

Rendered with incredible precision and a naturalist’s sensitivity, Erick Swenson’s 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 the 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. Sightings: Erick Swenson was the first museum exhibition dedicated to the artist in his adopted hometown, and his first solo exhibition in Dallas since Obviously a Movie (Angstrom Gallery, 1998).
