Jane Swavely's atmospheric, abstract paintings "simultaneously point to the history of the medium while maintaining a firm conversation in the now. (Her) aim is to create a place of space and light to inspire a shift in perception that is at once familiar and unfamiliar."
Jane Swavely studied at Boston University and the School of Visual Arts in New York and is the recipient of a Ford Foundation Fellowship. Her work is in numerous public and private collections, including the JP Morgan Chase Art Collection and the Allentown Art Museum in Pennsylvania. Previously represented by CDS Gallery in New York, Swavely is currently a member of A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, where her most recent solo show, Jinx, took place in November 2018. Founded in 1972, A.I.R. is a historic, non-profit, artist-run exhibition space that supports the open exchange of ideas and risk-taking by self-identified women artists.
