Sean Flood: Residual Layers
Sean Flood’s latest cityscapes of Boston and New York examine the complex layers and overlapping structures of the urban landscape. A reflection of the artist's roots in construction and street art, Flood’s paintings layer line and form to build up his images like the very high-rises they depict. These dynamic compositions, imbued with the energy of Flood’s intense mark making, reveal the residual layers and structural framework hidden just beneath the surface.
Flood’s latest body of work reflects an ongoing dialogue between his oil paintings and recent graphic work. Fresh off a residency at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT, Flood has expanded his talents to the field of printmaking. Flood's prints of cityscapes and skyscrapers take advantage of the monotype medium’s unique spontaneity and immediacy. As with his paintings, Flood layers line and form to harness the frenetic energy of the city.
