Sean Boyles in Artshift

Review by Erin Goodwin-Guerrero
Filling the gallery of Empire Seven Studios is San Jose's Japantown are an assault of images from large canvases to drawings, prints, painted contructions and a quirky series of paintings on liquor bottles and long playing records. Sean Boyles gives us everything from in his notebook sketches to side trips into abstract expressionism. There is no room on the walls for title cards but in the tradition of anti-establishmentarianism that accompanies his youthful genre, the titles and prices are casually noted directly on the wall itself. Sandwiched in together with the aggressive or sad faces, nascent ideas, and sometimes-forgettable trivia, are the many works that reveal a talented observer of life around him. Within this giant collage, I felt rewarded to discover a pair of untitled mixed media-screenprint images that were rich in layers and details and some small linocut portraits that were delightfully controlled and composed. The big paintings grab most of the glory, nevertheless.
