Sean Capone: Cosmicomics

This group of work was influenced by abstract painting in the early 20th century, a period when artists were intensely engaged in various philosophies of eastern spirituality, the occult, mysticism, transcendentalism, and sacred symbolism. The pictorial freedom of abstraction allowed artists to navigate this field of alternate cosmologies, hallucinatory landscapes and radiant geometries. The title ‘Cosmicomics’ is borrowed from Italo Calvino’s series of whimsical short stories that follow the birth & evolution of the cosmos.
