Anya Swan’s pictorial and sculptural practice uses handmade materials, strict methodologies, and emotive figuration, as tools for understanding and navigating being in the world. Scrub is a new large-scale sculptural installation that negotiates a crisis of art making—is the environmental cost of production, in the service of art, justifiable? Process-driven methods and a set of self-defined rules on materiality guide the artist in the consideration of this question’s complexities. Rethinking and reframing art practice, Scrub presents a durational transformation, imagining a new life for the art object.
