The Essence of Life and Line – Short Film

Mohawk Monkey
A short film made during production for Sean’s solo show at Indy Hall:

The Essence of Life and Line

Inspired to explore representations of life in a spontaneous fashion, Sean began stripping away all but the most basic aspects of animals and objects, recreating each with the bold, visually stunning lines that have come to define his most powerful work. Each piece – ink on paper, devoid of color and the third dimension – completely re-imagines the subject in rugged beauty and savage simplicity. The images stare back at the viewer, filled with raw emotion, comprised of incredibly intricate patterns and lines that practically vibrate with energy. The show on September 7th, featuring more than two dozen works in the series, showcases the Essence of Life and Line, and how raw and powerful simplicity can truly be.

The show is mainly comprised of 19.5” x 27.5” ink-on-paper interpretive drawings, as well as several older, larger drawings that were the origin of the technique and inspiration for the collection. The range of subjects cover the living, the ethereal, and the static.
