Mark Swords’ artistic output to date includes painting, installation, textiles and collage. His work uses both abstract and representational imagery. For this exhibition Swords will show paintings from 2015 to the present. Some of this work will be incorporated onto a painted backdrop, while more still will be collaged together to form a tapestry of disparate painted imagery. The exhibition as a whole will represent the artist’s lived experience and his locality, his world, both small and infinite.
