Sean McGaughey

Working stream of conscious, Sean McGaughey does not do any preparatory sketches. He does the majority of thinking on the painting surface, and painting over "mistakes" with flat areas of color, but still allowing them to show through. By not fully covering the "mistakes", the painting becomes a documentation of itself, and the viewers gain insight into the dialogue, which occurred between the artist and the painting.
