This series of paintings by Sean Mahan is part of a larger series of figurative paintings on wood. The paintings are social-realist graphite renderings on oak and birch, colored with thin washes of acrylic. They depict a sense of wonder at the simple inherent sweetness of the human character and its conflict with structures of power and control. In this series, the symbol of the “shadow person” is repeatedly used to pose questions about those “in the shadow of power,” and to pose questions about our insulated view of the impact popular consumer culture has on others.

” Made with a serious smile and a wry mind in Dewsbury, England Now living and working in Lucerne, Switzerland A deep wish for continued renewal and re-invention is reflected not least in my activities as an artist. My objects and installations mirror an independent minded, intellectual and emotional panorama which is a direct manifestation of the eclectic, polyvalent and curious way in which I occupy myself with anything that is any way remotely connected with the nature of being and man’s interaction with and perception of the world within and without him. My investigation of a diversity of subjects, such as death, religion and existence, is far from scientifically based but relies rather more upon a radically subjective view of me and my surroundings. I have a profound desire to communicate intricate ideas in a concise and reduced, often ironic manner, using a variety of easily (and not so easily) available domestic and adapted (p)re-manufactured materials. the confirmation and extension of self is a central theme in my work. ” – Michael Goodward

” Ongoing project, where I use light and colored background to make plastic bags look magical. Creating a landscape within the plastic bag. Plastic bags are a huge contributor to the landfill waste, and are extremely harmful for our oceans and the creatures living there. Do not say yes to a plastic bag when shopping. These plastic bags were found in the street.” – Vilde J. Rolfsen

After graduating from the RCA with an MA in design products, Chris Labrooy first began to use 3D as a simple tool to visualise ideas for furniture and products that he could not afford to produce. As 3D technology and hardware evolved, Chris LaBrooy saw an opportunity to explore CGI as a creative medium in itself with which he could subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural forms. Chris LaBrooy is interested in the intersection between typography, architecture, product design and visual art. Chris LaBrooy has exhibited at the design museum in London and has been featured in many publications covering design, products, typography and illustration.
