"lacquer" - org gallery RIC - May 8th 6-10pm

Ian Swanson
opens May 8th 6pm - 10pm
org gallery
Detroit artists
Ian Swanson, Chris Samuels, and Lindsay Yeo
have banded together to open
The Org Gallery
in the Russell Industrial Center.
They will be producing and directing regular bi-monthly shows
of cutting-edge contemporary art
from local and national artists at the gallery.
An exhibition of recent painting and sculpture by artist and gallery director Ian Swanson will kick off the galleries inception on May 8th and will be on display through June 6th.
Ian Swanson says about his work:
"Often I find myself searching for a fleeting simplicity or domesticity
that has somehow been misplaced amidst routine information overload.
Feeling lost in the hyper-stylized hybridization of technology, responsibility, and social activity that's required to maintain the fa├žade of normalcy and productivity.
I gaze uncertainly at the comfort of cynicism and the challenge of optimism, engaged in a hypothetical tug of war between what was, what is, and what can be.
Currently my work deals with notions of repair, utilizing impossible models of fictional structures; hovering in the space between the slickness of mass production, and the intimacy of labor and chance.
The Org Gallery is located on the third floor of Building 2 at the Russell Industrial Center in Detroit, MI, down the hall from Detroit Industrial Projects.
