Dream against the Clock is an exhibition of new oil paintings and sculptures ­- almost abstract, they contain a sentient figurative presence.   

Drawing and painting are of equal significance in Felicity Swan’s practice and her approach is intuitive. A strong colourist, her work hovers between the abstract and figurative, and an added gesture can take the work to a different place. Within it there is often a hint of primordial narrative, which manifests itself as a piece develops.

Most recently, she has been making small sculptures from recycled materials. These are developing into a body of sentinels and towers, painted or using discarded canvases to form a new narrative.

Originally from New Zealand, Felicity graduated in History of Art at Auckland University before graduating with a BA Hons in sculpture at Central St Martins (UAL). She lives in South West London and exhibits mainly in the UK and New Zealand in both solo and group exhibitions. Felicity exhibits annually with Richmond Art House open studios and is a member of Kingston Artists Open Studios, Riverside Artists Group and Tenfold Art Collective.
