Mixed media painting on canvas. 

"This is an abstract seascape created in an expressionist style. The inspiration coming from the local coastline near to where I live. I have experimented with lines, colour, composition and mark making to create an impression of nature at its most primal state..evocative of artists such as Karel Appel, De Kooning or Pollock. The image may seem primitive, the overall effect is that of wonder and awe at an almost child like level. On box frame using mixed media."

Sean Madden

Describing his artistic approach as 3-D collage, the multidisciplinary artist Sean Madden explores and creates elemental hybrids that culminate in powerful sculptural forms. Constructing small-scale sculptures, Madden counteracts their modest size with signals of power, vigour and strength, taking heed from cartoonish figurines, aerodynamic principles and historical symbols of fortitude and tenacity.

Exploring both the medium as much as the subject matter, Madden presents his bronze-cast statuettes often in a rough, textured finish, implying an Expressionist emphasis of the material and surface as seminal to the oft-imposing forms. With titles that range from Epic to Supernature, Madden’s work is an embrace of the fearless and brave.
