The Carlos Gallery in the Nabit Art Building at the University of the South is pleased to present Solitude of the Everyday, an exhibition of photographs by Art Honors candidate (2018), Hunter Swenson.
Starting with a concern about the limits of what is expressible, at least photographically, Swenson builds this body of work around the experience of solitude. Over thirty color, and black & white photographs are sequenced on large expanses of gallery walls, in ways that the arrangements themselves bring attention to the tension between the individual and relational experience. “This work spring from the my day-to-day life,” says Hunter. “The images show moments where I felt solitude in myself or in others — (and uyet) this work is not morbid.”
Solitude of the Everyday attends to the nature of relationships, even while these are rendered within a frame and seemingly solitary and singular. Hunter Swenson (b. 1996) is an Art Honors candidate (2018), majoring in both art and philosophy from Sewanee (C’18). Hunter is a photographer and sculptor, whose work deals with experiences, spaces and language. Hunter has done photographic work in Grundy County, Colorado, Haiti, Jamaica, and Tanzania.
