Visualization of Emotion

Visualization of Emotion explores the conceptualization of what emotions, feelings and psychological states visually look like through color psychology, neural oscillations and space perception.  What are the emotions at pivotal points in my life that help me overcome and move through stress, anxiety, anger, fear and sadness as well as bask in, realize and appreciate positivity, happiness and gratitude? These emotions are states of transcendence, rejuvenation, revival, renewal, joy, tranquility, serenity along with powerful energetic states to harmony, peace and stillness. Just as light can be projected around, inward and outward so are emotions, which are expressed, felt and seen. Similarly, emotions are deep within both the subconscious and conscious which coincide with what neural oscillations are being activated. This body of work explores the visualization of these emotions while creating experiences and interactions that are beyond the actual art piece itself by means of pushing the boundaries of the perception of light, the depth of sensory reality, therapeutic states and allowing present emotions to appear, be felt and shared. 

Beauty in Chaos

Sean Crim’s series, Beauty in Chaos, exemplifies the overwhelming aspect of life while creating the balance amongst it all and seeking the tranquility within it. He pushes the boundaries of his art in this series by utilizing color, contrast, light, movement and texture with different mediums - paint and neon light. This series brings about the external and internal challenges within oneself while creating the light within and finding the beauty in the chaos to move through it all in the present moment through grace and positivity.

Present + Positive

Sean Crim’s series, Present + Positive, is inspired by the deep emotional states of the present being. This series illustrates the strength of the present moment in a positive, vibrant state through bursts of enlightening as well as dark moments Sean has fully been immersed in and experienced. He utilizes color, contrast, lines, movement and texture creating powerful, non-objective works that focus on the present to reflect, learn and grow. This series continues to explore and strive for true happiness and self-worth through mental strength and being honest with his self to look within and always move through to move forward.

Into the Light

Sean Crim’s series, Into the Light, illustrates emotional and intuitively driven pieces through mental, physical and spiritual growth. He utilizes color, contrast and texture to create a deep sense of inner strength always striving for positive self-worth no matter how dark things can become. These works magnify the uplifting power from within to always pursue true happiness and self-growth.    

Following your Happiness

Sean Crim’s series, Following your Happiness, dives into the happiness of dessert. He opens up about his journey on what reconnected him with painting and art, dessert. These paintings exemplify the celebration, joy, loving and exuberant feelings sweets and treats bring to him and how he has always seen it be a part of peoples’ lives whether it is at a party, event, dinner, special occasion or a night in. Desserts always put a smile on his face and make him happy especially cake pops and cookies illustrated in this series. He pushed the abstract aspect leaving room for interpretation while maintaining expressionism throughout each piece through color, content, contrast, movement and texture. He wanted each painting to be bright, emotional and moving, bringing a smile to his (your) face while filling up with happiness and joy, taking him (you) to his (your) happy place.

Animals, the Spirit Within

Sean Crim’s series, Animals, The Spirit Within, dives into the conscious verse unconscious realm of animals bringing them together in unity. His series illustrates the relative representation as well as the emotion, energy and inner spirit of each animal. He uses the exaggeration of color, layering texture and contrast to convey both realistic and abstract features in his pieces. Each piece has its own self value on what underlying emotions are felt and within one’s emotional state. He embodies his own seer-intuition, inner-self and energy into each animal, and what each animal brings about in his own self. Each of these pieces explores the emotional and psychological self of what the animal brings out within one’s own inner person. This invites the opportunity to look beyond the animal itself into one’s own psyche as well as seeing the animal as it is, creating the sense of being in a multi-dimensional realm.  The viewer can view each piece in a physical, emotional, and psychological state.
