“This curiosity evolved with my observations of the urban landscape; the strong architectural lines of a building existing with the organic forms of clouds passing behind it, or the desire paths left by pedestrians seeking the route of least resistance. I’m inspired by psychogeographic theories, the power of color, and the poetics of time and space,” said Swann.
Ms. Swann received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from The University of Texas at Austin, and her Master of Fine Arts from The University of Texas at San Antonio. Swann’s works have been included in exhibitions at Ad Hoc Art in Brooklyn, New York; Women and Their Work in Austin, Texas; McDonough Museum of Art in Youngstown, Ohio; Laredo Center for the Arts in Laredo, Texas; and UTSA Satellite Space, cactus bra SPACE, and Joan Grona contemporary art gallery in San Antonio, Texas. She currently lives and works in San Antonio, Texas.
