Sean Vicary is an artist currently based in West Wales, UK
He originally studied painting but became increasingly seduced by the possibilities of working in time-based media. His animation and moving-image pieces have been broadcast in the UK and exhibited worldwide.
“My work explores ideas at the heart of our relationship with the ‘natural’ world, place and landscape. I’m drawn to investigating links between the subjective, scientific and social/ historical aspects, especially those that are obscure or concealed.
I often work place-sensitively; observing and collecting found objects and fragments of detritus, then manipulating these elements in a virtual space to create animated assemblages. These act as triggers for the viewer, sometimes suggestive of a wider narrative or hidden processes at play behind the visible.
I am currently working with ideas of the uncanny, re-wilding and contemporary manifestations of Genius Loci.”
