Ceramics Visiting Artist Lecture: Marc Swanson

Marc Swanson received his MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, and also studied at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine. Marc works in diverse media, including sculpture, drawing, collage, photography, video, and installation. The investigation of personal history saturates his work in all media, as does a quiet nostalgia that accompanies such a mining of the artist's past. Critic David Velasco writes, "Swanson is an automythologist, one who excels at crafting sparkling, enigmatic totems from the messiness of his own history." The artist has also been called an alchemist, recasting the aesthetic and cultural connotations of his materials through a visceral, highly personal narrative
