Sean is a multidisciplinary artist working predominantly in fine art printmaking and photography. His work has a stylized aesthetic influenced by 20th century design, with colour references inspired by various movements and periods of art history. These elements have informed the compositional structure of his recent work, such as the ‘Decades’ series of analogue silkscreens, including the ‘1946’ editions. By introducing analogue cutout stencils into the silkscreen process he could explore, deconstruct and manipulate silkscreen printing to create a purist expression.
His ‘Night frightens the day, Калі ноч палохае дзень’ series is inspired by Botticelli’s Primevera 1492, which influenced in part the use of plants and foliage as motifs to form new psychological ideas based on veiled or hidden meaning. The ongoing dynamic between artistic expression and technical capacity that exists within fine art printmaking drives Sean to take an innovative approach in pushing boundaries and resolving the technical aspect of producing work, so as to better connect with the viewer and enhance their experience.
