Carly Swenson

28 08 2011

Carly Swenson is a purposeful (I’ve never used that word before), ambitious, bright, talented young artist. This is both her strength and her weakness. She is confident. I think. Well, as confident as an artist can be. Artists are not a lot different than actors. They feel compelled to talk about their art. By which they mean themselves. Carly shows splashes of humour and delight in her work. When she is playful, it is very good. When she is trying to be an artist it can be… (I won’t say it. You look at her work.) As an artist she seems very likeable. But she suffers what a lot of artists suffer from and that is… credentials. She has a wonderful blog, well worth reading.
