Tampa, FL (February 2015) — From February 23-27, the Centre Gallery at the University of South Florida will host Flesh Tones by Natalya Swanson and Daniel Miller. There will be a closing reception on Friday, February 27, from 7-9pm.
Natalya Swanson graduated from the University of South Florida in 2009 with her Bachelors of Art in Art History. She currently lives and works in Sarasota, Florida where she is preparing for a career in Art Conservation.
Natalya’s paintings are an exploration of identity within art and society. She recreates famous artworks by pairing original compositional elements with contemporary imagery and figures. Through the transformative process, Natalya embeds personal beliefs on religion, sexuality, and selfhood within the works. Painting has become a form of meditation, where she visually interacts with her thoughts.
Daniel Miller graduated from Ringling College of Art & Design with a degree in Graphic and Interactive Communications. This will be his first showing of oil paintings. The collection of large scale genre scenes are an attempt to bring the viewer into Miller’s past, enveloping the viewer for their own happening experiences. Previous exhibits have included video art, printmaking, and graphic design. Miller is also part of the Sarasota Contemporary Arts Collective, SARTQ. More information can be obtained through the artist’s website, www.danielmiller.me.
