Amy Swartz:  Down the Rabbit Hole

January 3 – February 11, 2017

Meet the artist: Wednesday, January 25  |  3-5pm

Using incongruous materials, Amy explores synergies between the natural world, consumer culture, fantasy and her own life experience. Similar to a plastic surgeon grafting bone and skin to reconfigure the body, she performs a related type of physical manipulation by conjoining and reforming objects. During this process, she reflects on the complexities that link living things, and in contrast, our attempts to control life through artificial means.
