January - March 2018
I am both an object maker and an installation artist, intrigued with spatial design and the interaction of materials with light. My plastic and metal constructions incorporate rich, translucent color that glows in sunlight like stained glass. The work communicates a playful, graceful feel.
All of (my) work has been shot in medium format film and then hand printed on hand made paper, in Palladium Printing. My main intent is to show the extreme landscapes that we have here in Northern Colorado, using a modern style camera (although film) with a 19th Century technique.

Painting is a meditation for me. It is a time to be with myself and my thoughts. It helps me analyze things and not react too quickly or badly. When I place a new canvas on my easel, there is a moment when I feel that everything is within my power. And when the painting is completed, I feel that it has a part of me in it.
Although Colorado native Reven Swanson graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in journalism, her passion was for sculpting. She worked in advertising and newspaper production for a while, then as an artist's apprentice in Italy. Swanson's style is markedly contemporary in what she describes as whimsical, playful and celebratory.
I am a self taught sculptor, new to the art scene. I am inspired by nature and I love creating sculptures of all creatures great and small. Many of my works are sparked by significant events in my life. I'm in love with the process and often wake up thinking about a new idea.
I capture the seasons of Colorado in paintings and natural light photography.
