Fracture/Acess is a cross media installation exploring ideas of instability, abjection and binarism through analytical figuration. The work explores figuration as an order of visual language, negotiating and considering the dense allegorical and associative connotations the human form has absorbed throughout historical, commercial and popular image culture.

Consisting of two life-size paintings on traditionally prepared board, watercolours, drawings and video projections, the gallery will become a kind of diagrammatic map, creating ambivalent spaces where one can personally associate and interpret the ambiguous, the foreign and the familiar.

Fracture/Access shows at BUS Projects, Basement, Donkey Wheel House, 673 Bourke Street, Melbourne from 21 June – 9 July 2011. Opening night Tuesday,  21 June from 6pm.

Sean is the recent recipient of an Australia Council ARTSTART grant and a Siemens travelling art Award.
