Sean Farrell

Sean Farrell, still life painter
Largely self-taught, and inspired by numerous trips to Italy and the Netherlands where he studied paintings of the masters in museums and churches wherever possible, American painter Sean Farrell brings his fascination with 17th Italian and Dutch painters to play in his luminous, richly hued still life subjects.

Farrell makes wonderful use of chiaroscuro in his paintings, in which his primary subjects emerge with great definition from dark backgrounds, the forms of objects at the edges of the composition often receding into shadow.

There is not much biographical material on his website, but there is an brief interview video on YouTube.
