Opening Reception: Tara Swalgren's As Nature Intended

Presented by Studio 66 (The Arcade) at Studio 66, Nashville TN

Opening Reception: Tara Swalgren's As Nature Intended

Paintings by Tennessee based artist Tara Swalgren will be on display at Studio 66, on the 2nd floor of the downtown Arcade, during September’s First Saturday Art Crawl. The artist will be present, along with a selection of her houseplants available for chats.

Artist Statement: I have always been interested in the innocent and peace mindset of animals. They are majestic, mysterious, and desired. They represent something that humans will never have. Yes, we are more advanced and our chances of survival are higher, but there is purity to animals that we don’t have. Animals don’t kill for revenge or other unnecessary means. They enjoy one another’s company if permitted. They only act for survival. They do not over think the world around them.

These are some of the many reasons I pursue animals as my subject matter. I find them captivating. However, I want to make the animals more desired, more captivating, and more mysterious. I integrate other natural elements onto these creatures. They are fantastical yet they appear feasible. They don’t look so far off from the animals we see in our own lives. You might even believe that you have seen something like this before. I want my viewers to enjoy these creatures. Feel free to get lost in the color and texture. Indulge yourself, if only for a moment.
