Housekeeping with Sean Foley

Hunter Hallway is under renovation as Sean Foley installs his new piece, Ruse…We’re all very excited!!!

Keep in touch with the blog this week as we update you on the new exhibit in our 100-foot long hallway!

Sean was born in Indiana and teaches at Ohio State University. He brought two studio assistants with him, Emily Martiny and Katie Bullock, to help him piece together the “monster painting”.

So what is Foley up to? Yesterday he said they we’re mainly housekeeping and getting the space ready for the 3D mural.

We had the chance to talk to Sean and get an idea of what the piece is going to look like! Sean said most of his works are usually grotesque, however, this one is a little more comic-like and fast-moving.

He is drawing inspiration from camouflage and Looney Tunes.


Sean is using this opportunity to play “Frankenstein” with painting! He says painting is NOT dead! He is attaching colorful pieces to the wall to give the mural more dimensions and LIFE! Mwahahaha!

Sean, who describes himself as a romantic, wants to “privilege your imagination” and allow you to see painting in a new light.

Keep checking the blog for updates!!
