Paintings by Sean Mahan

Illustration // Wednesday, March 05, 2014
Sean Mahan's body of work consists of figurative paintings on wood investigating questions of innocence, feminine domesticity and adolescence. 'The paintings are social-realist graphite renderings on oak and birch, colored with thin washes of acrylic. They depict a sense of wonder at the simple inherent sweetness of the human character and its conflict with structures of power and control.  The symbol of the “shadow person” is repeatedly used to pose questions about those “in the shadow of power,” and to pose questions about our insulated view of the impact popular consumer culture has on others.'
