Marc Swanson

Untitled (Four Black Elk), 2010

Marc Swanson works in diverse media, including sculpture, drawing, collage, photography, video, and installation. Given this diversity, the artist employs a surprisingly refined range of materials, relying on a concentrated vocabulary of wood, glass, textile, naturally shed animal antlers, and precious metals. He often juxtaposes “high” and “low” materials in the same work: rhinestones, gold and silver chain, and black mirrored panels meet lumberyard two-by-fours and white cotton t-shirts coated in latex. In these juxtapositions, the former adorns the latter in a way that is transformative for both.
