Held Above

Carrie Swim
Held Above, Testimony of Touch Series, 2012.
Original acrylic and oil on canvas.
Signed at the lower margin.
Framed and wall-ready.

In her MFA graduating thesis series, “Testimony of Touch,” Carrie Swim explores the profound vulnerability surrounding birth and death. Through eight large-scale works, she delves into a dialogue with the divine source of life. Mind and heart are laid bare as Swim engages in prayer, dance, and the act of painting itself, transforming these processes into a powerful artistic exploration.
