Sean Branagan: Take Me Anywhere, I Don't Care - I Don't Care15. Jan - 12. Feb 11 / ended James Hockey and Foyer Galleries
Sean Branagan's work has a hint of the impossible but nearly graspable about it. His moving image pieces bridge traditional artistic techniques and contemporary visual language.
With the adoption of LCD screens 'time', 'light' and 'movement' become elements that are as valid to his practice as more conventional ones of painting such as line, form and colour. Light and movement emanate from within the work. However, light is also applied externally onto the work, to be seen in the full light of the Gallery. Branagan creates works that consistently 'pop the bubble' of visual art, reaching out towards us whilst inviting us to reach inside them.
Branagan's work exists simultaneously in two and three dimensions. He doesn't describe the world we know. Instead he attempts to breach 'The Real'. His art is less about creating a navigable bridge between the tangible and intangible; more an orchestration of seeing and feeling the work homogenously: about embracing the idea that perhaps there is no difference. Perhaps there is only one thing – 'The Real'.
