The show

If asked about his painting, most likely Sean Shanahan would resort to the following aphorism: «I am in an infinite ocean of color. I have the ocean all around and I take some in the palm of my hand: it is always ocean, but now it is no longer infinite ".

 

Shanahan's works escape the nomenclature, they even manage to slide it over them, just like their shaped edges: as sharp as they are bold, capable of invalidating the traditional geometry of the "sacred rectangle". They are uncut edges, which highlight the MDF support, but above all they serve to outline and rethink that threshold that tends to graduate the work towards the surrounding world. By redefining the boundaries of his pictorial research, the artist manages to undermine any definition, giving rise to a geometry that brushes aside tradition and that seems untranslatable otherwise.

 

There is an insurmountable boundary that keeps the painted surface at a distance from the surrounding reality. In Shanahan's works the edges modulate the transition from one to the other, thus sanctioning an approach and interpenetration between the pictorial work and the architectural context. The artist's monochromes never try to replace reality, they do not imitate it or take it as a model; in them one never incurs illusions or inductions, in figurative or narrative features, the gaze is intercepted only by color, to seal the quintessence of the painting.
