The incredible lightness of boxes
Archival Gallery presents the artwork of Sean Royal
Sacramento's Sean Royal is a self-taught and self-motivated artist. Well, he does get a little help from a Bruce Lee or Frank Zappa quote here and there, like, “Without deviation, progress is not possible,” from the latter.
Royal's new series combines layers of Plexiglas and light boxes with images of feminine beauty—such as a portrait of a young woman, like the glamorous Hedy Lamarr, or disembodied, full lips—plus geometric shapes and graphic flourishes.
He'll be exhibiting this work at Archival Gallery for the month of November. Also showing is John Stuart Berger.
