In his third solo exhibition with Childs Gallery, Sean Flood explores the New York Transit system, connecting his familiar cityscapes to a frenzied, labyrinthine world below. In prints and paintings, Flood observes the subway and its structures, uniting and confusing space, while paying close attention to the passengers and their interactions. By layering reflections and using mark making to interpret the sound and movement that comes with the hustle of commuting, Flood introduces the viewer to a new perspective of this underground world.
Cityscapes of Boston and New York round out the exhibition, complimenting Flood’s new subterranean venture with his recognizable skylines and street scenes. Through subways and cities, Flood paints a vivid ode to urban life both below and above ground, perfectly encapsulating a bustling metropolitan atmosphere.
