Oil on canvas

Shawn Polmo’s new collection of works finds him shifting mediums. Switching from graphite to oil paint has allowed Polmo to feel less constrained by the slow and controlled process of drawing. The artist still relies on the human form to provide shapes, tones and depth, but now does so through color. While drawing remains a critical part of Polmo’s practice, the complexities of working with paint drew him to expand. Creating mood and human reaction through using color is the goal of this latest release.

“I would say most people have a character or voice in their heads. Whether you call it your conscience, your god, or guardian angel we as humans tend to feel like someone or something is experiencing or viewing our lives with us.”
