“I know I’m great.” “C’mon art world fall in love with me again.” Such phrases cover Sean Landers’ latest paintings. Presumably revealing his in- nermost thoughts, Landers’ statements are each written in different colors and sizes and are often. repeated and over- lapping, suggesting that the words are reverberating inside his mind…
was lucky enough to have been one of the Ď1990s artistsí who suddenly emerged after the irrationally exuberant New York art scene of the 1980s crashed. I felt like a singer/songwriter wearing thrift-store clothing and playing a worn-out acoustic guitar, thrust on stage directly after a spandex-wearing, hair-sprayed, heavy metal band with their double-necked electric guitars just exited in a blazing pyrotechnics display. I sang from the heart, so to speak, and I reduced art to its most basic content. I wrote slightly twisted yet honest things on a yellow legal pad and taped them to gallery walls (a cry for attention)…
Somehow, asking Sean Landers questions seems a little redundant. I am a fan, and everything I want to know is already there in his work. But some advice from this well-equipped artist would be nice. What first attracted me to his work was the way he used honest statements to make paintings. He makes human art with brains. I admire his fearlessness. Iím always afraid that Iím going to fail in a picture/decision, but he has built failure into his process. Jokes do bomb…
