All Day Amy Swartz Mixed Media Exhibition: Down the Rabbit Hole (Multi-Day Event)

The Robert Langen Art Gallery's first 2017 exhibition, Down the Rabbit Hole, is a mixed media display by renowned Canadian artist Amy Swartz.

Using incongruous materials, Amy explores synergies between the natural world, consumer culture, fantasy and her own life experience. Similar to a plastic surgeon grafting bone and skin to reconfigure the body, she performs a related type of physical manipulation by conjoining and reforming objects.

During this process, she reflects on the complexities that link living things, and in contrast, our attempts to control life through artificial means.

Amy Swartz is a Toronto-based visual artist. She creates highly detailed and meticulously crafted collections that combine both natural and artificial materials in sculpture, installation and drawing. Her work explores the idea of obsession — not only in the practice of art, but also in humanity’s perceived control over nature, life, and death.
