Sean holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons) and Graduate Diploma of Fine Art from the National Art School. In 2016 Sean was awarded the Mark Henry Cain Travel Scholarship where he researched Baroque ornament and design in northern Italy. He has been a finalist in the Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize (emerging), Grace Cossington Smith Art Award and the Art Gallery of NSW Basil and Muriel Hooper Scholarship.
Sean’s work explores our perception of the natural world as contemporaneously influenced by technology. Grounded by a love for materiality and a fascination with science fiction, his practice employs various methods of production and reproduction in order to transform earthly materials into luscious, otherworldly textures. Methods of sculpting, casting and illuminating using 12V lighting systems link his own body to that of the autonomous processes of technology. These hybrid surfaces imagine a future where nature has reclaimed and absorbed human creation, incorporating it into its own forms.
