One of the more than 60 artists listed in the Bellefonte Art Museum’s registry is Sean Bodley. Here is his statement:
I draw inspiration from everywhere. I go out into nature and paint en plein air to study color, landscape, and motion. From the figure I learn about form, anatomy, and the human spirit. I create compositions of fantastical nature by creating digital collages. Then I paint them to create fictional realities. These are inspired by all the things I love to read: history, the news, non-fiction, and the endless feeds of the internet. I pull inspiration from meditation, video games, and all the wonderful artists I encounter. I'm constantly seeing to expand what I create; working in oil, acrylic, watercolor, drawing media, and modeling clay are just a beginning for future projects.
Participation in the art community is also important for me. I regularly teach drawing, participate in art events, and exhibit my work throughout the area. Find out what I'm up to next at my blog: http://www.seanbodley.com/blog/
