Biography

Sean Landers achieved recognition in the early 1990s for work derived from his confessional outpourings, densely covering paper and canvas with imagery of breasts, chimpanzees, and clowns. In addition to his text-based compositions, he creates cartoons, bronze busts, videos, and figurative paintings of animals and humans that show extreme shifts in style, including remakes of William Hogarth's 1732 canvas A Midnight Modern Conversation and the "Around the World Alone" series, in which a clown captain mans a ship in dramatic seas.
