Robert Swain: Color Energy & Introducing the New MINUS SPACE, by James Kalm

Robert Swain “Color Energy” & Introducing the New MINUS SPACE
by James Kalm, June 15, 2015

“James Kalm, in his efforts to stay abreast of some of contemporary painting’s most provocative practices, has for years been observing the work of Robert Swain with interest. Swain’s sophisticated system of color tones, and spatial relations is a unique direction of investigation, with an obsessive side that boarders on the eccentric. This suite of large paintings, produced specifically for the new Minus Space, provide viewers with an essential view of the artist’s achievements. Despite a constant stream of enthusiastic visitors, Matthew Deleget, takes time out to discuss Robert’s work, and give viewers the lowdown on the fantastic new MINUS SPACE. CONGRATULATIONS Matthew, and Rossana. A musical introduction is provided by Scottish Octopus and was recorded live at Union Square.”
