Opening Friday, February 7th 6-9pm
Line Dot is thrilled to present Sean Hannaway’s first solo show: ‘Now with More Extra!' featuring a new collection of original paintings on reclaimed rococo-style mirrors. Come join us for drinks with the artist at the opening reception next Friday, February 7th from 6-9pm.
Sean Hannaway is a Chicago born-and-based painter known for his punchy, densely layered style that blends high Renaissance subjects and graffiti aesthetics. The push and pull between his techniques, colors, and influences creates a dynamic tension in his work. A cheeky sense of humor pervades his practice, and is manifest in his use of plastic framed rococo-style mirrors from the 1960s as his canvases. Once obscured by layers of paint, the forms of the mirrors lose their gilded, gaudy essence and become graceful curves and flourishes that seamlessly blend into the final painting. Hannaway daylights as a Creative Director at Leo Burnett and has been featured in three previous shows at Line Dot, all of which sold out.
