The Delight of Painting. A selection of 15 of Swansea's recent works
This show is a selection of 15 of Swansea's most recent paintings. Many of the works are involved with the outside world, especially the changing light of the sky. Many of her works in this show are seascape or haystack paintings. Swansea shows an excellent and unique way of representing the setting sun which lights up the sea and the light of the full moon on haystacks in a field. The 'backlit waves' seascape series is about the moment when the sun goes down, or comes up, from the sea, and for a minute or two, the water of the waves is lit from behind. This makes odd colors such as weird greens and deep purple shadows. Her haystacks seem to resemble massive blocks, portraying a 'curtain wall,' with a glimpse of daylight slicing through the structure. Opening 10 January, 17-19h.
