Davidson Galleries is pleased to share new work from Sean Caulfield. Featured are six new works from 2019-2021, five mezzotints and one woodcut. Caulfield is known for his drawings, installations, and prints that examine the merging of the organic, human, and machine worlds. 

Focusing on broader themes of mutation, metamorphosis, and regeneration involving both the landscape and the individuals that inhabit it, I aim to raise challenging questions for viewers about the role they play.

His new works address these issues while further exploring the prevailing feelings of crisis, absence, and entrapment. Caulfield references diagrammatic drawings, military propaganda imagery, product photography and more to further complicate our position within our environment. Trees become planes or rather planes become trees and rain fire down upon their own kind. Trees are both constrained by and free from the diagrams that interpret them. Veins, or roots, or perhaps train tracks, describe paths to unknown destinations from unknown sources. Caulfield engages the viewer by obscuring the source in the naturalization of the manufactured, or the manufacturing of the natural. Are we acting upon the world or is it acting upon us? With our position constantly in question, we look deeper at the assumptions with which we began.
