Sebastian

Fransz

artist statement.

Sebastian has drawn all his life and he carries on two separate practices. A keen interest in destructive forces as creation and a love of the letter form as object has compelled him to avidly pursue a graffiti-oriented route of inquiry.

This exists alongside a slower, more considered and effectively very dark drawing process, through which Sebastian attempts to understand his compulsion to make and destroy, using this inner contemplation as a springboard to create bleak, psychological and abstracted landscape drawings which attempt to ask similar questions of humanity at large.

Central to this practice is the notion that no one can ever comprehend anything outside of themselves, and it is when we observe the natural world that this idea is most resonant. We are at odds with our environment and each other, and this is neither good nor bad.
