In the Gallery at R&F:
Sean Sullivan's Lost on Roads - Opening Reception Saturday December 4th, 5-7pm / Artist talk at 5pm. The exhibit runs through January 22nd, 2011.
Lost on Roads is a solo exhibition of new works by Rosendale painter and R&F paint-maker, Sean Sullivan. Sean does his best thinking on the move, in the car, the radio on. The world disappears. Thus, Lost on Roads is a travelogue of sorts, a postcard, a found film – a document as honest as the artist could make at this time. When Sullivan first began to think about ideas to pursue for this show, a few unsaid, unwritten rules emerged in regard to theme and process. As for process, it was very clear that the art making needed to be simple, direct and quick – even easy, in terms of execution. Most of the work was done using pigment sticks on paper or a combination of encaustic medium and charcoal on paper.
