Seattle-based Treason Gallery will launch a solo exhibition of works by the influential street artist, Swoon. Entitled “Every Portrait Is a Vessel,” the upcoming presentation will showcase a diverse selection of mixed-media portraiture by the artist spanning archival and newer works. From Swoon’s signature pieces that involve woodblock printing and papermaking to her artworks built using music boxes, the presentation will shed light on the artist’s technical and creative process on multiple mediums.
“Swoon’s process begins with images of subjects who capture the human condition,” described the gallery. “She executes their portraits on various mediums: forgotten and discarded doors, decayed building materials, delicate handmade paper, and even large exterior walls.”
View select works above and then head over to Treason Gallery’s website for further information. The exhibition will be open to the public on April 5.
