'Inhale-Exhale' Tori Swedosh



Tori Swedosh is a mixed media artist working in Melbourne. After graduating as a printmaker from the VCA in 1989 she started to explore painting. Enjoying the immediacy of acrylic paint and the bold richness of oil pastels she explored dream landscapes and personal motifs relating to balance and self destruction. Ideas which still haunt her curiosity.

Bringing together many years of playing with different ideas and techniques while experimenting with different styles, Tori is now using her yoga teaching background to explore the yogic principle, “Does it lead you away from Suffering?”. She has happily joined Sanctum Studios in 2021 and is excited to see what comes next.
