Ellen Harvey and Ena Swansea: Sight Unseen

Locks Gallery is pleased to present a two-person show of the works of Ellen Harvey and Ena Swansea on view from January 9 through February 21, 2015. There will be an opening reception on February 6th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Both artists have expanded the way one can encounter painting through their signature styles—Harvey with her inventive conceptual installations and engraved mirrored-Plexi works and Swansea with her oil on graphite paintings. While Harvey plays with art historical motifs and Swansea presents cinematic or almost dream-like scenes, they are united by their explorations of light, vision, and the human landscape. On view from both artists are works in traditional oil paintings alongside recent pieces that toy with our perception through unusual material experimentation. Each artist has previously had two solo exhibitions and been included in two group shows at the gallery.
