By combining their individual artistic practices and ideas into a common space, the five artists' mission revolves around creating a vibrant studio and gallery environment that is open to the public and intent on helping bolster the community's rapidly-growing arts culture. Swell will be host to both First Thursday and independently organized artistic events while maintaining hours of operation during which people can visit.   

Randy Van Dyck

Swell Artist Collective’s Randy Van Dyck is an artist based in Boise, Idaho. Although birds are often the focus of his work, his true inspiration comes from the English language. He is drawn to words or phrases that strike a chord and tries to express them visually, often breaking them down into a very literal portrayal. Each concept starts with the title which has become integral in explaining the imagery. Some are quite simple and straight forward, while others are more obscure and thought provoking. There is a sense of humor to the work, but he strives to create beautiful works that will stand on their own artistic merit. The inspiration and ideas are coming faster than Van Dyck can paint them, almost taking on a life of their own. www.vandyckframe.com
