York Fine Arts is delighted to present ‘Sean Durkin: Art for All!’, its second annual solo exhibition of original paintings by contemporary British artist Sean Durkin.
A resounding declaration of the populist nature of fine art, Sean’s paintings shine a light on Britain’s industrial past and its proud working people. Brimming with grit and wry humour, his work tells the stories of ordinary people, readjusting our gaze and rightly offering the myriad pleasures of fine art back, into the hands of all.
Sean Durkin | Sean enjoys creating rough, textured surfaces to suit the grittiness and mood of his paintings. The narrative of his work is further enriched by the inclusion of a burglar and a policeman in every painting, as a reminder of his father’s sensational theft of an L. S. Lowry painting. In a rather ironic twist of fate, Sean's work now hangs on public display in the prestigious Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA) next to the very same Lowry painting his father once stole. Sean holds regular exhibitions in his native North East, and has been featured on BBC TV, as well as numerous radio stations and newspapers.
