Sean Peoples is a multidisciplinary artist with an interest in imitation, appropriation and collage. Informed by extensive research, his work seeks to integrate and parallel disparate ideas and concerns, often employing networks and models as a visual device.
Seans’ second solo exhibition at STATION, Cubism Surrealism Tourism, draws on antipodean notions, both real and imagined, to juxtapose Australian politics, the globalisation of political movements, science fiction, social media, time and the universe.
Through a laborious process of 3D printing, accumulation, distortion and a re-imagining multi-dimensional, seemingly lo fi and disparate materials, Sean suspends history in time. What results, is a collection of wall based sculptures that displays Australia’s 31 Prime Minister’s and antipodean concerns.
Here, Sean draws attention to the merging of the every day and highly manufactured environments to interrogate value, replication, technology and aesthetics of home decor.
