About Sean Joy Cabanig
Sean is a student at the CSULB School of Art in her fifth year. She is expecting to graduate very soon and she will be receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Metals. But before going to Metals, she was a studio art major. She’s a SoCal local–born in LA and living in Long Beach. She has a boyfriend and she very much loves him because she smiled the entire time she talked about him (illustrated above). She plays a lot of video games with him.
Sean’s work is. . .beautiful. Each piece is flawlessly made and executed with expertise. She spoke a bit about a ring she made in her gallery and though it seems like a simple piece of jewelry, she emphasized the amount of patience it took to perfect it. She spoke about her process which starts as a concept on paper. . .only the she bends the paper to actually model what she wants to create!
Sean’s work is about her and her emotions in her life. She molds the metals according to her emotions, her surroundings, and thoughts. She even mentioned how her humor plays a huge part in her work.
What does it mean to me?
When I see Sean’s work, I am reminded of how much time and thought is necessary to create a beautiful work of art. That can be translated into any aspect of life when something must be done with 100% planning and effort. The penis piece itself embodied this for me. Upon studying it, I imagined just how much sculpting and touching up it must have taken to get the intricate details down.
