About This Book
The Honolulu Museum of Art presents the first major solo museum exhibition of Erick Swenson. Based in Dallas, Swenson creates labor-intensive sculptures cast from polyurethane resin.
But beyond the initial impressive display of skill and workmanship, lie complex ideas of history, the passage of time, and its effect on living beings. His sculptures, howeer, capture not only the tragedy, but the complex beauty of nature. Swenson's animals have undergone a transformation-into something that feels eternal, mystical, and universal.
