"Through my travels I have always been drawn to isolated places. In the past these were physical geographical parts of the world I have experienced. Now I find myself going inward, areas of spiritual and emotional isolation that I find disturbing and fascinating. I find recording the former on board or canvas much easier than the latter, but that only adds to the attraction."
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.
