Multifaceted in scope, Sullivan’s practice employs drawing, sculpture, book works, and installation to engage with the legacy of modernist art and design. While often recombining and synthesizing visual language from art history, literature, and popular culture, the formal references exercised in his work are contrasted with the ephemeralness of his production. A central concern is that books—through the act of reading, translation, and interpretation—are malleable framing devices which allow one to float or consider a set of ideas to momentarily freeze a subject in flux.
