Tyler Swain Artist Reception
August 4 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Tyler Swain is the featured artist in our Bigfork gallery for the month of August! Join us for an artist reception for his solo show “The Birds and the Bees” on Friday, August 4th from 4-7pm to celebrate his work – in conjunction with Bigfork Village Night!
Tyler Swain’s work is cultivated with a gentle attention to detail, seeking a balance between simplicity and complexity. When talking about his viewpoint as an artist, he often quotes a phrase attributed to Leonardo daVinci – “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”????????
From the Artist: “The more I painted still life, the more I started to approach painting the still life objects as portraits, focusing on the unique aspects of each thing. The texture and distressing that I add to the background is a way of creating tension between refinement and spontaneity, and acts like a foil character in a movie or play for the protagonist.????????”
