of Impressionist paintings, Ena Swansea’s Agent invokes a
timeless sentiment. Working against a blackened ground, Swansea
uses paint in the negative process of pastel drawing. Painting
from memory rather than photographs, Swansea conjures her
image from a subliminal void. Instead of solidifying form,
her colours replicate light itself: shimmering highlights
and reflections of surfaces refract from objects not physically
rendered. Through this romanticised suggestion, Swansea’s
figure lingers with ghost-like presence, her Arcadian charm
elucidating from what isn’t there.
