Artist: William Swanson
Gallery: Marx & Zavattero
Exhibition Dates: February 12 - March 19, 2011

Swanson talks about his art in saying, "the situations presented in my paintings are diagrammatic renderings of engineered environments. I like to pose a fictional view of the ever-changing state of nature and its various forms of adaptation." As a viewer I agree that his art conveys such a reality due to it's depiction of a natural environment fused with manmade apparati. Even his style of painting is comparable to computer graphics. Overall, his content makes the viewer sympathetic with the landscape in the same way as they can relate to any organic environment being infiltrated by something manufactured and foreign.
