Artist Sean Ellcombe discusses his recent exhibition at the RGI Kelly Gallery. The exhibition was held from the 23rd October – 6th November 2020. Sean Ellcombe is a Glasgow born and based artist, who graduated painting from the Glasgow School of Art in 2019. Since graduating, Ellcombe has been actively nurturing a painting practice, one which investigates the physiologies of the painting in tandem with how a viewer physically engages with the surface. This is an active and playful invitation to engage the viewer with painting as an accepted material. It is Ellcombe’s belief to challenge traditional expectations of both the artwork and the viewer – with painting being archaically a known pathfinder to working idea of art.
