Adam Swanson

Adam Swanson is a Duluth-based painter and muralist fascinated by the way science fiction posits a future for humanity that is transformed by major environmental changes and technological innovations. His invented landscapes ask viewers to consider unfamiliar places, such as the lines between true false, fiction and documentation, natural growth and urban development. Adam paints wild animals and scientific equipment to create poignant and sometimes humorous tensions between humans and the natural world.
