The Art of Seamus Conley

by Kirsten AndersonPosted on

Painter Seamus Conley’s work is a blend of photo-realistic imagery and moody magical realism. His enigmatic paintings feature people with their back predominantly to the viewer or faces concealed in some manner, often a hard visual trick to pull off yet executed successfully through Conley’s combination of intricate detail and romantically isolated atmospheres. Dressed in modern clothing, his subjects are often juxtaposed against (and sometimes gazing longingly at) epic, timeless landscapes, or modern settings that nonetheless have a dreamlike, pristine aura, evoking contemplation of the transient nature of time, our place in the world, and moments of transcendence found in even the seemingly mundane.
