It’s All Wood Sean Carney

November 18 - January 14


Visit the Solley Theater Lobby Gallery to view works by Sean Carney, on view through 1/14/2017.


As a fine artist I feel the need to touch every medium. I enjoy the elements that construct the artwork and relish in the process. My recent works on wood are done using only wood stain and a Dremel. There has been an obvious progression in my works lately in regards to color and surface. Through experimentation with different types of water based stains I have been able to expand my pallet and texture by leaps and bounds. My paintings look like traditional paintings from a distance, but upon closer inspection you gain a realization that they are not traditional at all. It is that moment of contemplation that drives me to continue my growth and development.
