Courtlandt Swartz

They Look Like Butterflies (2022)

Courtlandt Swartz works with back-painted tinted Plexiglass to produce large-scale minimalist artworks. The material allows for selective surface clarity, creating windows and apertures that offer a glimpse into internal elements, which are concealed and revealed as the viewer's vantage point changes. Based in Toronto, Swartz is focused on blurring the distinction between two and three-dimensional painting, creating multi-faceted works that challenge viewers’ perceptions of space and presence.
