Sean Beavers presents an exhibition of oil paintings by Maine artist Sean Beavers. Beaver''s self-described, symbolist paintings evoke a deceptive sense of hyperrealism integrated with alluring allegorical tendencies. His work reflects the 20th century move away from direct representation in art toward a more conceptual motivation for imagery.
