MIYAKO YOSHINAGA is pleased to present Burger & Bonsai, a exhibition of whimsical landscapes by Minnesota-based American artist Carolyn Swiszcz.
Swiszcz is renowned for her uncanny, yet affectionate landscapes and building exteriors, employing a wide range of printmaking techniques, vibrant colors, and distinctive patterns. She derives inspiration from quirky features of buildings, parks, signs and banners, window displays, and distinctive trees.
In her images, Swiszcz blends layers of abstraction and randomness with figurative elements including letters and geometric patterns, creating a sense of otherworldliness. Her latest work revels in off-kilter multicultural elements in Midwest suburbia, i.e. her “Parking Lot Bonsai” (2023), which features neatly arranged silhouettes of miniature trees in a Burger King parking lot.
The exhibition runs through June 30, 2023.
