THE POWER OF SWOON

swoon new orleans

We’re huge fans of Swoon’s work. Her depictions of women and children convey emotions that are both intense and calm at the same time. Whenever we see her work it really draws us in. Currently Swoon has an exhibition at The New Orleans Museum of Art. It’s on display until September 25th. There, they transformed the Great Hall to display Swoon’s large scale Thalassa. Named after the Greek goddess of the sea and inspired by the connection between New Orleans and the sea, the strategically positioned 20 foot installation hangs majestically from the ceiling. Its impact is heighten with multicolored fabric extending out from beneath to represent tentacles rising from the waters, making it seem as though she is floating over you. If you find yourself in New Orleans anytime soon we highly recommend visiting the exhibit.
