Triangulador at Communication

Communication is pleased to announce a solo exhibition from Liubóv Szwako "Triangulador," whose work has been especially visible on the curbs of Madison this past summer.

Exhibition reception will be Saturday, November 9 from 5-8pm. Work will be on view through January 5, 2020.

A bit more about Liubóv Szwako:

Szwako is a self-taught artist. A Spring 2019 interview by Tone Madison contributor Jess Haven holds these quotes by Szwako that describe his priorities well:

"I like being able to have people see the work and just go out of their routine of seeing something that's trash on the street, like making it pretty and having someone appreciate something that they would not even look at if it was the other way. That's what it is."

"It's like a metaphor for life. You can spend your whole time making something pretty but it's all temporary; everyone's gonna die. It's a really dark way to look at it but everything's temporary. We're not here for more than a few years and we're all gonna be dead. So, it's just to show people to live in the moment, do what's cool, but if it goes to the dump it's cool. And if someone picks it up, it's even cooler. Everything in life is temporary; everything's disposable. It's just a matter of how you look at it, and if you have the time to appreciate it, cool. A minute it's there, a minute it's gone. I'm okay with that."
