Rick Swain’s unique works reflect his love of human and natural forms and his deep understanding of this warm organic medium. His works are to be found in private, corporate and government collections in New Zealand and throughout the world. Swain’s forms are sourced in such incidents and in the nature of the selected medium. The works are gestures about sources (material and emotional), rather than articulations of objects. They are relational plays about presence and absence, the light and the dark.
