Henry Swanson

b. 1993; Dallas, TX
Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY

Henry Swanson is a fine artist examining polarities and performative aspects affecting the art world today. Swanson’s bisected oil on canvas paintings illustrate divisions in process, style, economic interest, time period, and cultural disparity.  Considering the mythos of personal inspiration, culture as branding, and performative trendsetting in the fabrication of artwork, Swanson's work examines the identity of the artist and questions art’s role as a function of the crafter’s precious care, or the contextual aid to a social construct.

Swanson maintains studios in Brooklyn, NY and Dallas, TX.  He received his BFA from RISD.
