  • Sean Kelly Gallery - Sun Xun - Artist Biography
    of memory for the visitor filled with realistic and fantastical iconography Sun Xun was born in Fuxin an industrial mining town in northeast China and grew up in the period immediately following the Chinese Cultural Revolution The lingering aftereffects of this movement continue to have a profound impact on his work which often explores the themes of global history culture memory and politics He is especially interested in the way historical events are perceived and remembered by ordinary citizens versus how they are officially presented by public agencies and the media Sun Xun s work explores concepts of past versus present personal versus political in symbolic and surrealist ways often choosing to use animals and insects as the main characters of the story instead of people Sun Xun studied printmaking at the China Academy of Fine Arts and founded Pi animation studio in 2006 In 2010 he was awarded the Best Young Artists award by the CCAA the Young Art Award by Taiwan Contemporary Art Link and the Arts Fellowship by Citivella Ranieri Foundation Italy Sun Xun has held multiple solo exhibitions around the world most notably at the Hammer Museum Los Angeles The Hayward Gallery London The Drawing Center

  • Sean Kelly Gallery - Frank Thiel - Artist Biography
    documentation but picture a city reborn after a tumultuous history Thiel refers to Berlin as the youngest city in the world and further explains that the city that suffers from an overdose of history yet it does not suffer from its sediments like other European cities but from the consequences of its eruptions The architectural spaces in these photographs are not only reflections of a turbulent social and political history but of the emergence of new patterns of urban existence Previous bodies of work have focused on such topics as state surveillance and the privatization of public space Thiel s commitment to the constant transformation and development of Berlin for more than a decade has become an integral part of the unfolding history of the city and its most important photographic record In recent work he has turned his camera on the massive glacial ice formations in Argentina Patagonia Thiel s photographs seem to refer to a larger narrative context yet they also explore the relationship of photography to painting and sculpture Thiel s special ability to inscribe the dialectic relationship between ideology and aesthetics in his photographs also prevents any appearance of sentimentality Frank Thiel has exhibited extensively in

  • Sean Kelly Gallery - James White - Artist Biography
    he is well known White s commitment to an apparent tradition of representational painting imbues his work with a fundamental permanence underscoring the continuity in moments of silence doubt and repose that have been the subject of art for centuries whilst profoundly updating its implications Painted on aluminum wood or plastic his work has its origin in snapshot photographs taken of his environment both domestically and when travelling a door that is slightly ajar a glass of water left on a bathroom sink a broom leaning against a wall The objects in the paintings imply a narrative arc that similar to a cutaway shot in film creates a psychological space for reflection on actions that lie outside the frame White s masterfully rendered moments of everyday life bear comparison to the quietude of paintings by the Flemish masters and Lucian Freud s early interiors whilst the distilled forms that inhabit them reflect a more contemporary ritualized minimalist sensibility James White received his BA from the Wimbledon School of Art in 1989 and his MA from the Royal College of Art in 1991 Recent solo exhibitions include The Black Mirror Sean Kelly New York and James White New Paintings The Goss

    and provocative perplexity to pervade his imagery Wiley s larger than life figures disturb and interrupt tropes of portrait painting often blurring the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation and the critical portrayal of masculinity and physicality as it pertains to the view of black and brown young men Initially Wiley s portraits were based on photographs taken of young men found on the streets of Harlem As his practice grew his eye led him toward an international view including models found in urban landscapes throughout the world such as Senegal Dakar and Rio de Janeiro among others accumulating to a vast body of work called The World Stage The models dressed in their everyday clothing most of which are based on the notion of far reaching Western ideals of style are asked to assume poses found in paintings or sculptures representative of the history of their surroundings This juxtaposition of the old inherited by the new who often have no visual inheritance of which to speak immediately provides a discourse that is at once visceral and cerebral in scope Without shying away from the complicated socio political histories relevant to the world Wiley s figurative paintings and sculptures quote historical sources and position young black men within the field of power His heroic paintings evoke a modern style instilling a unique and contemporary manner awakening complex issues that many would prefer remain mute An Economy of Grace Wiley s debut exhibition at Sean Kelly gallery marked his first ever series dedicated to female subjects An award winning documentary film about the process behind this exhibition was directed by Jeff Dupre and produced by Show of Force Kehinde Wiley received his MFA from Yale University in 2001 Shortly after he became an Artist in Residence at the Studio
