K Neil Swanson
Deeply rooted in K. Neil Swanson’s painting is the symbolic nature of his work, with elements of past, present, and the future. Ever present in his works are a sense of place and a deep spirituality.
Like an iceberg afloat in the ocean, there is the feeling when viewing his art, that there is something below the surface. It may be hidden: like a feather fallen across the snow or wolf shadows among a small group of deer. On mountain and glacier, over the wind dried plains, the skies move with energy and color; crystal clear nights with a monumental moon, and stars illuminating earth and all below. Ancient stone circles, still found in many Alberta sites, become energy circles in a story Swanson spins on canvas.
Neil is a previous Best New Artist at the Calgary Stampede & Exhibition Art Salon. His work has been featured in International Artist Magazine, Master Painters of the World Canada Showcase, as well as Canadian Country Cowboy Magazine, and Alberta Views Magazine.
