Swoon is a big favourite here on SLAMXHYPE, and this very impressive collection of works that coincides with the artists “Swimming Cities of Serenissima” arrival in Venice is perfect evidence. In addition to Swoon, Matthew Lusk, Santiago Mostyn, and Javier Piñón also added work to the exhibition entitled “Drift” in New York. “Drift,” refers to “both physical drifting – a raft as it moves across the ocean – and the metaphorical drifting of transient communities and populations that live on the fringes of mainstream society.” While Swoon’s work features some intricate portraits of family and friends creating a really nice feel with a piece of her father, “Milton,” which was created especially for the Swimming Cities of Serenissima.
