Tony Swain, Undetailed Progress

About

At a time when we have become desensitised to an image-saturated world, Tony Swain (born Northern Ireland, 1967) uses sections of newspaper that are pieced together as a support for paintings of fragmented landscapes and abstract patterns.

Using acrylic paints, he fixes these ‘works on paper’ directly to the gallery walls, emphasising the everyday and temporary feel of newsprint. While occasional details of the newsprint and images survive, most are transformed by their inclusion within Swain’s painted world.

For his exhibition at BALTIC, Swain presents a series of new and recent ‘pieced’ paintings that continue his explorations of the representation of landscape.
