The Deitch Gallery is holding an exhibition on the work of SWOON, a 27-year-old NYC based female street artist. SWOON’s worlds are often populated by realistically rendered – and evocatively cut-out – street people, often her friends and family.

Inspired by both art historical and folk sources, ranging from german expressionist wood block prints to indonesian shadow puppets, SWOON is a “master of using cut paper to play with positive and negative space in a conceptually driven exploration of the experience of the streets.”

July 7 – August 13, 2005
Deitch Gallery, 76 Grand Street New York
