Seamus Conley‘s recent oil paintings offer a convergence of reality and digital fantasy. In that latter world—and in materialism—there’s a hope for fulfillment that Conley explores. His recent body of work is currently on display at Andrea Schwartz Gallery, in a show that runs through Dec. 21.
“Paradise Syndrome is in keeping with Seamus Conley’s traditionally fantastical style,” the gallery says. “Conley’s artwork explores the intersection of fantasy and reality; he is interested in portraying the experience of daydreaming while simultaneously existing in the external world. In this body of work, Conley also examines artificial intelligence through portraiture.”
