Yelland doesn’t set out to make specific statements with his paintings. Rather, he prefers people to react intuitively and emotionally as opposed to intellectually. His intention is to draw the viewer in with something that may seem familiar at first, but upon closer inspection, the imagery subverts any initial reaction. The paintings may be perceived as sombre, but are balanced with a subtle sense of humour, either within the image itself or perhaps in the title. Use of light plays a major role in determining the emotional tone and is the content when none seems readily apparent. Sean finds that over analysis on his part, can inhibit an audience from forming their own understanding of the work, thus stunting the purpose of the art itself.
