statement:

Sean O’Keeffe explores screen and fine art cultures through a variety of mediums including video, sculpture and 2-dimensional work. His work has employed and responded to the imagery and conventions of cinema ranging from the language and tropes of the screen to the technical structures and mechanics of filmmaking: In recent works, many created collaboratively with performer-devisor Carolyn Eccles under the collective banner Darkroom, Sean has used this approach to investigate the subjective pluralities of written and percieved histories. Sean often works collaboratively with communites including young people, aged care residents, and school students to produce his screenworks. He is a long-term resident of the Blue Mountains and has exhibited nationally and internationally.
