Sean Cheetham

A few years ago I wrote about an L.A.-based artist, Sean Cheetham.  Recently he put out around a dozen new paintings, and I'm excited by a few of them. 

The installation of "I Pity The Fool 2012" is startling and captivating:

For a more detailed look at each of above paintings, see the pig and the child.

His use of dark colors in this one, Khari 2011, is skillful and makes me study it with appreciation:

Conversly, his use of whites in White Rabbit harkens back to how John Singer Sargent made whites pop amid darkened scenes.

Visit Sean's blog to see his full portfolio.
