Art Description

Painting: Paint, Household, Fabric, Found Objects and Environmental on Canvas, Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric) and Other.

Alt Sur's Shawn Sebastian is an emerging artist with Latin and British heritage who specializes in recycled, repurposed artworks that often defy physics in the manner in which they are held together to form intricate layers of material and history through stages of time. He often uses found objects, old recycled painting substrates and charred burlap to recreate new mixed media works that reference the materials and processes of previous generations through a clear, uncluttered contemporary aesthetic. Minimalist, yet thought provoking works.

Recycle Reconstruct Ten features a bottom layer of distressed burlap over stretched wood. Piece of reclaimed paintings are given a whitewash and fasten to the same stretcher for compositional effect.

Alt Sur first introduced Sebastian in 2015 in a two person show with another emerging artist, Nic Branning Diez. He exhibited a series of brilliant red-orange mixed media works made from elaborately overlaid fragments of cloth, treated eucalyptus bark and ironed bullrush reeds. Sebastian also showed 5 large blue, black and silver works feature repurposed construction materials. The sell-out show was a resounding success for both artists.
