   "The exhibition is personal, featuring a large-scale self portrait and a gaze into Jantzi’s studio and home. In bold, flat colours, Jantzi’s paintings speak through a language of contemporary pop, where seductive connotations act like advertisements for a good life. Luminescent hues and crisp contours emulate a digital quality, and limbs hold a familiar frame. In many of the paintings, hands, breasts and beings extend outward to suggest the viewer in a moment of action. Jantzi describes his perspectival painting as a play with the boundaries of the “fourth wall”, a convention in film and performance where an invisible wall separates the actors from the audience. The series is provocative, as viewers are enticed to consider themselves as part of the story, and traverse Sean Jantzi’s point of view as a visual artist."
