BIOGRAPHY

SEAN BRANNAN

Sean has lived and worked as an artist in Southern California for 18 years. He is originally from New England. Sean holds a BA in Design from Plymouth State University, NH, 1993, and an MA in Psychology from national University, CA, 2012.

 

THE ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

"I am concerned with the creation of an evolving perceptual interaction between my work and the viewer. The juxtaposed interaction of vibrantly layered colors and abstract elements in non-sequential repetition has the cumulative effect of creating an optical phenomenon of vibrational, energetic movement along with perceptual ambiguities. These works are meant to be contemplated at length. Thus, the committed viewer is continuously rewarded with a transmuted visual display."

 

ABOUT THE WORK:

The artwork has been created using a unique synthetic fabric/paper. Each strip has been hand-painted and precisely hand cut to retain an organic nature of forms. The artist refers to these collaged, multi-layered paintings as “thickets,” due to their dense reed-like appearance. These award winning works have been collected throughout the United States, and have been featured in prominent art + design publications.
