Seamus Staunton








Seamus Staunton
Window installations.

‘Seamus Staunton fashions sculptures of extraordinary organic grandeur. His abstract work is so well made and structured one feels it might have some practical application. Some look like dream boats or buoys, others like foghorns or the sound boxes of some strange shell-like instrument. One way or another, they all appear to have been crafted with a passion for oceanic rhythms and sounds. This air of half-familiarity adds to their strangeness. Many resemble containers that hold nothing but a distant tremor of undefined resonance.’
