POLLINATION: THE WORK OF STACI SWIDER
October 4, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pmFREE
I sit and watch and listen
The sounds remind me of Morse code.
Everything is communicating, pieces in an elaborate quilt
They are parts to a whole, like a pattern that forms a language
It’s the simple poetry of simple things.
Producing exceptional fine art inspired by craft, Aiken painter Staci Swider’s work reinterprets the patterns and textures found in function-driven objects such as quilts and baskets as dreamscape imagery that straddles the line between figurative and abstract.
Swider’s visual history includes stints as both a corporate and freelance textile designer, professional painter and author. Her work has been exhibited at the Morris Museum of Art, the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, and the Gaardensity Gallery. She is currently working on a painting book planned for a Fall 2016 publication date. Swider is represented by fine art galleries across the south east.
