A SWAMP TALE

A SWAMP TALE

A solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Greg Ito. Ito builds his own world in A Swamp Tale with paintings, sculpture, lighting, sound, and installation. Upon entering the gallery, the viewer is transported into Ito’s world, one in which clues like an offset candlestick, a message in a bottle, or a slithering snake reminiscent of the one on the cover of Joan Didion’s Play It As It Lays all point to a larger narrative to unpack. These evocative genre symbols are rendered in Ito’s distinctive ligne claire style and purple, blue, pink, black, and orange palette. Like a dream, the swamp is a space where the past, present, and future collapse into a bog of our mired hopes, fears, accomplishments, and failures. Join us on a journey that navigates these and the murky perils of love, loneliness, magic, and reality.
