SwipPle, Ill Fitting (27 Sizes) Ann Arbor, MI

Residential College Art Gallery

701 East University Avenue

Ann Arbor, MI

In the upcoming exhibit, Ill Fitting (27 Sizes), Swipple continues its

mission of bringing together a diverse blend of artists who span a

broad cross-section of art-making in the US today. From the highly

trained to the self-taught, from young to old, from art-world insiders

to relative unknowns, Swipple looks first to the artwork, seeking out a

resonance among artists not so much in style but in sensibility.

Here you’ll find photography from widely exhibited New York based

writer/publisher/skater Jocko Weyland next to visionary airplane

designs from Canton Belanger, whose work is rarely seen outside his

attic studio. Work from mail art pioneer and all around madman E.F.

Higgins III will hang next to the wacky conceptualism of San Francisco

based Brion Nuda Rosch. Russian born Chicago artist Julia Kuhl checks

in with her delicate and lovely watercolors, Los Angeles landscapist

David Skinner contributes secret vistas, & Florida born Steve MacDonald

rounds out our geographic claim to the lower 48 with his unbelievable

hand-stitched glitter flecked panoramas. Silvio Barille, fresh from a

recent feature in Raw Vision, has promised to loan us whatever size

concrete sculpture we can lift, and Jim Damron continues to cement his

status as a true American master with his recent oil paintings and

light sculptures.
