Sean Yelland is a Toronto based painter whose work plays with a sense of mystery in everyday urban settings. His work has a power to it that plays with a sense of voyeurism and intrigue. By confronting the viewer with scenes that should be full of action but are shown in a state of stillness, he is removing the comfort of the expected, and questioning our relationship to our environment.
