Sean G. Clark

Region: South


City / State: New Orleans, LA

During his time as a community health worker in New Orleans, Sean found himself at odds with the troubles people faced in his environment and the lack of attention it was getting. He sought to use art as a means of investigation, and as a result of looking into the problems in his community, Sean arrived at the intersection of art and public health. Through this creative lens, Sean has begun an artistic practice that surveys themes of health and African-American history. This practice also involves a deeper consideration of a person's internal landscape and how we think, feel, and act due to the impacts of unresolved grief. At the center of his creative practice are abstract and figurative works that seek to capture internal narratives.
