New Artist: Swoon

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

Show & Tell Gallery is very pleased to announce that a new artist has been added to the gallery's roster.

Caledonia Curry is a Brooklyn based artist better known under her moniker Swoon. Curry draws her inspiration from historical and folk sources as diverse as German Expressionist woodblock prints and Indonesian shadow puppets. Creating stunningly beautiful life-sized character studies from paper cutouts, woodblock prints and linocuts, her worlds are often populated by realistically rendered - and evocatively cut-out - street people, often her friends and family. Riding bikes, talking on a stoop, going grocery shopping - these people traverse a cityscape of her own unique invention. Swoon is a master of using cut paper to play with positive and negative space in a conceptually driven exploration of the experience of the streets. Her work can be found in sophisticated collections across the world including the MOMA in New York.

Swoon will be taking part in the gallery's 2 year anniversary group show opening at the beginning of March.

We will have several original works available in addition to a mixed media print edition that will be released exclusively through Show & Tell Gallery.

If you would like to be added to Swoon's collector list please email the gallery.  We will be releasing more information about the print release in the coming weeks.
