Incidental Narrative - Artist Talk with Sean McCusker

Incidental Narrative with Sean McCusker

Freeing interpretation from the intent of the artist. Sean McCusker’s artwork illustrates dramatic storytelling through mysterious surreal landscapes. Drama is constructed from intense contrasts and vibrant colors, filling each composition with an overwhelming feeling of significance. However, there is no defined narrative. Each painting feels like a story, and a captivating one, but there is no preconceived narrative. Instead, the story is constructed by the audience and on an individual basis. Find out how such collaboration, between artist and audience, can open the door to amazing creativity on both sides of the painting process. What does open interpretation mean to art? How will it change your art viewing experience?
