Past Exhibits


Sean Flood (1982) is originally from the south shore of Boston, Massachusettes and is currently based between Boston and New York City. Flood received his BFA from Lesley University formally known as the Art Institute of Boston in 2005.  Flood works between oil painting and an array of printmaking processes while focusing on the ways a cityscape can be translated.  Through the use of layering mediums and intersecting views, Flood combines not only the pictorial view of urban spaces but also the energy the space exudes.  Flood is deeply influenced by instrumental music and  interested in understanding sound as a way to interpret his mark making application.  Flood has most recently received the Stobart Foundation Grant and will be pursuing a printmaking residency at Lesley University in June of 2017.  Flood will resume painting and concocting work in his Queens studio in NYC during the sticky months of the late summer.
