The Thinkspace project room will be the home to Sean Mahan’s latest exhibition, Translucent Vision. Known for his graphically-stylized take on social realism, the Florida-based painter creates sweetly nostalgic portraits and illustrative renderings of children, incorporating vintage objects and motifs to explore an idea of cultural obsolescence through the fetishization of symbols and references drawn from bygone eras. With interest in the socializing dimensions of culture and consumption, Mahan encourages the viewer to critically reconsider their preconceptions and engagement with the mores that physically determine not only our ways of seeing but our potential for growth and more substantive existences. Mahan seeks the innately good and redemptive qualities of humans, drawing from both hopeful and melancholic reserves in his imagery.
