Edward Swift is a novelist and visual artist who was born in Texas but spent most of his life in New York City before relocating to San Miguel. He creates wood boxes that serve as proscenium arches for displaying enigmatic figures made of papier-mache, wood, fiber and found objects. He is best known for his munecas, small androgynous figures that represent nightmares, clowns, forgotten gods or inmates from an open-door asylum.
From time to time the Galeria Edward Swift will feature the work other artists. Galeria Edward Swift is currently showing new jewelry by Lynn Lennon.
