RECEPTION FRIDAY AUGUST 16, 7-9pm
These days, Sean Flood splits his time living and working in both Boston and New York City, observing the urban environment and alternating his creative focus between painting and printmaking. Flood’s solo exhibition “Pressed” highlights his current body of works on paper, a portrayal of the NYC Transit System and those fleeting moments in motion frozen in his mind’s eye, then relayed to ink applied to a plate and pressed onto paper. The show also includes several of Flood’s unmistakable canvases celebrating the verticality of a city skyline and the rush of the streets below.
Flood’s background in street art continues to influence the work he does today, the fluidity of his brush marks combined with palettes that vary from rich siennas and blues to everything in between are punctuated by the contrast of stark and significant strokes of black that draw us into the canvas. Flood’s monotypes, each one a unique impression of urban life, share the same sensibility, though notably more intimate and charged with his perception of how humankind interacts with its day to day encounters and environs.
Flood received his BFA in Fine Art from the Art Institute of Boston, Boston, MA. His work has been exhibited throughout New York and the Boston area including the de Cordova Museum, Duxbury Art Complex Museum, and The Copley Society and is included in numerous corporate collections.
Meet the artist Friday August 16th, from 7 to 9pm.
