Chelsea, NY, May 30, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Agora Gallery is proud to present Graeme Swanson in United in Art – an Exhibition of Fine Art from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland.
About Graeme Swanson:
Whether creating drawings, screen prints, acrylics on paper, oils on canvas, or etchings, Graeme Swanson’s independent style shines through. In his paintings chalky pastel shades agglomerate to produce quasi-abstract representations of earth and sky, as subtle geometric planes and lines mingle with the scene. Swanson’s interest is in what he calls “the essence and atmosphere of a landscape.” “To me, colours are emotions that are conjured up by seeing a place in a particular light, at a particular time of year,” he says. “I also like to record influences such as history, land utilization, change, archaeological sites, architectural designs, natural effects, weather and nature’s moods.”
For a quarter-century Graeme Swanson has been exhibiting his art throughout his native Scotland and as far abroad as Chicago and the former Yugoslavia, including as a regular contributor to the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh and to the Aberdeen Artists Society Annual Exhibition.
