Again, the Brewery Art Walk takes place….and this is your final chance to enjoy it.

A new10.20 BreweryArtWalkFlyer tenant to the Brewery, Charles Swenson is excited to join the art walk for the first time. Known as a successful animator, (Rugrats), Charles has been working full time as an artst.  This weekend , he will be featuring his Nudes and Shoes series.

The classic studio nudes were originally painted in 2007, but are now radically changed with the intentional placement of a seductive high-heeled shoe or boot purposefully placed over the face or body. This dramatic obscuring of the figure asks the question of how fashion truly affects today’s woman.

Swenson features a modern day woman as well as the relationship to fashion in everyday life. Yet there are many more elements to consider. “They say something about voyeurism, because you have to look past something to see the figure, and they say something about sexuality in that the shoes are sexy, kind of flirty, black, high heeled and a little domineering–demanding and slightly larger than life where the figures are slightly smaller,” he cites.
