SHAWN GILHEENEY

Because

Enamel, lead paint, wood burning on panel, 4 x 6'

2013 

Shawn Gilheeney's work and life is based on the urban experience, creating paintings, silkscreens, and installations using the themes of nomadism, urban decay, and renewal.  His work explodes off his canvas in an abstract contemporary meltdown, behind the wheel, on fire and loaded.  His imagery utilizes the street level vernacular of the Northeast's architectural legacy and decay as his inspiration.  Highly expressive, his pieces engage the history, progress and decline of America's great industrial revolution.  Please email johnj@mcgurkartadvisory.com for more information.

CHRIS VICINI

Love Will Tear Us Apart

Porcelain, neon, cord, 16 x 14 x 8"

2011

Chris Vicini is a sculptor based out of Gothenburg, Sweden.  His chosen medium is porcelain, with which he creates nearly impossible compositions, stretching the medium to it's limits.  Vicini's main source of imagery is the smaller flora and fauna that can be found in many wooded rural areas.  With Love With Tear Us Apart, he uses his traditional motifs combined with more figurative elements to create a stunning layering of detail and eroticism.  He has also employed neon to further enhance the concept and eloquence of the piece.  Vicini's work can be found in numerous private collections and museums throughout Europe and the United States.  Please email johnj@mcgurkartadvisory.com for more information.
