In their five year collaboration, Swindler and McFalls employ a cross-disciplinary approach that often results in unpredictable, sprawling arrangements combining sculpture, painting, printmaking and other sorted media and materials. Remnants from the previous works are combined with “new” components as well as elements from each of their respective individual studio practices. These combinations often manifest as large, composed piles of art-making detritus that serve as repository and resource for their installations. As studio artists, the two share certain inherent formal traits but widely differ when it comes to procedures, ideas, and motives. The resulting “tension” creates uncomfortable moments of compromise and artistic break throughs.
