Artist Spotlight Exhibition Opening | Featuring Matthew Swanson

Venue: J. Petter Galleries
161 N. Blue Star Highway Douglas, MI 49406
Join us for a meet & greet and demonstration with local painter Matthew Swanson. Swanson's work is improvisational. While not always obvious all of Swanson's pieces are landscapes. He starts with an idea fragment and it takes its own path. Along the way, he often finds that he must become a problem solver while trying to wrangle the ideas back into some kind of form. Using collage as a tool he brings the smaller landscapes into a larger format. It helps to simplify the forms and frees him from the trap of ‘local color’. Though more abstract, the landscape still lies beneath.
