Event Description San Diego, California — Madison Gallery presents Seán Shanahan’s “Air Choir”, the Irish Artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States. Shanahan’s use of colour and MDF wood lend his paintings a quality that feels simultaneously airy and dense, exploring luminosity, translucency, and contour. More akin to installations than traditional one-dimensional paintings, the pieces take a poetic form open to interpretation and introspection. “Air Choir” will exhibit twelve works creating a dialogue between the paintings Seán considers skeletal and works with fuller surfaces, exploring emptiness and fullness. The paintings imbue an anodyne quality equally healing and ruminative, inviting the viewer to question positive and negative space. If one were to cut these pieces open, they would find layers of pigment that deepen as one voyages further. Perhaps this is also true of the universal sentient experience. The works possess a candid opulence and vitality that awaken the room they inhabit.
