COOPER COLE has a new inventory of original work available from gallery artist Caledonia Curry (Swoon).
Caledonia Curry is a Brooklyn based artist better known under her moniker Swoon. Curry draws her inspiration from historical and folk sources as diverse as German Expressionist woodblock prints and Indonesian shadow puppets. Creating stunningly beautiful life-sized character studies from paper cutouts, woodblock prints and linocuts, her worlds are often populated by realistically rendered – and evocatively cut-out – street people, often her friends and family. Riding bikes, talking on a stoop, going grocery shopping – these people traverse a cityscape of her own unique invention. Swoon is a master of using cut paper to play with positive and negative space in a conceptually driven exploration of the experience of the streets. She has designed and built several large-scale installations, most notably the Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea at Deitch Projects in 2008. Her work can be found in sophisticated collections across the world including The Museum of Modern Art, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, and the Tate Modern.
