“His work is very compatible with mine in that he uses liquid and the ceramics is so fluid with him but of course it’s solid,” Swinand remarked.
Her portion of the exhibit includes 10 large-scale watercolors “in dialogue with Noel Bailey’s stunning ceramic forms.”
Later this year Swinand will open a one-woman show, “Nature Imagined,” at the Worcester Art Museum. It premieres on the museum’s reopening day, Thursday, Oct. 1, and will run through Feb. 7, 2021.
When asked about her art, Swinand explained: “I work a lot with shape. A lot of contemporary artists are more interested in color and texture but I kind of commit myself to shapes.”
She is an avid gardener and nature informs her art which reflects what she thinks could be believable and authentic in nature.
“The viewer can look at it and find it ambiguous yet evocative and contribute their own imagination to it,” she noted.
She has been an artist most of her life, graduating from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. She also received a Sartain Fellowship and studied with the Barnes Foundation for two years.
Swinand, 77, and her husband Lou are both natives of Philadelphia, Penn., and have lived in Shrewsbury since 1984 where they raised three sons.
