Episode 39: Artist Talk with SWOON at Chandran Gallery


Shane recently had a chance to attend an artist talk at Chandran Gallery in SF to hear Swoon talk about her career as an artist and humanitarian. This is a live recording of that talk on December 2, 2018. Here is a favorite quote that Drawing From Experience has transcribed from the event:

"One of the things that I have thought about a lot in the last couple of years is about the complexity of beauty and about how I really care a lot about beauty in my work, but I really care about a certain kind of beauty. Which is to say, the kind of beauty that contains a complete truth. And that can include tragedy, suffering, violence, all kinds of things that we don't want to think about or look at. That when I think about what true beauty is, like the kind of true beauty that connects us to ourselves, it's the kind of beauty that contains the wholeness of truth, but still sees it as beautiful."

The theme song "Shane and Sonia Ride The Bus" was written and recorded by Shane Izykowski.
