Sean C. Robertson
Sculpture, Booth 1028
Sean C. Robertson is a Toronto-based artist currently exploring soapstone and wood sculpture. Originally an actor, Sean performed in some of Toronto’s biggest shows including Mamma Mia!, The Lord of the Rings, and War Horse, until a back injury and the sudden onset of aggressive arthritis forced his retirement in 2013. In this body of work, Sean has created sculptures honouring the strength one finds when faced with life‘s seemingly insurmountable challenges, each piece celebrating the tenacity of will. With themes of Connection, Family, Resilience, Rebirth, Hope and Love, mixed with lines borrowed from dancers, Celtic ancestors, and the ocean, it is his intention that these objects inspire strength in the viewer as well.
