Sean Healy: Beautiful Downer
Elizabeth Leach Gallery, Portland, OR - Jun 6 – Jul 13
Healy is a fascinating Portland artist who chronicles his interior life through installations and sculptures made from diverse media, from laser-cut steel to saliva, motor oil and thousands of cigarette butts. His mixture of grit and irony aims to amuse as well as make one feel deeply a sense of a life lived partially under the gaze of others. Delightfully, he often provides an intimate look at a subject other than himself in his drawings.
