Sean Landers Exhibition
This event has ended.
Throughout a 17-year career as an artist, Sean Landers has created work in a variety of media including sculpture, installation, video, artist book, contribution to popular print media and painting.
A post-conceptualist and a major figure in the development of an abject, slacker aesthetic, Landers is recognized as having had and maintaining a significant influence on younger artists of the present generation.
The present exhibition will consist exclusively of text-based paintings. The exhibited paintings represent a return to text, though their content is more abstract than in earlier work. In an attempt to communicate with his family -some of the words found in the new paintings were chosen by his two children - Landers simplified his texts. This simplification creates a sense of interiority and depth as words and phrases appear and recede, fade and overlap in a manner resembling a child-like representation of an entirely egotistical subconscious.
