Both of these paintings by Toronto’s urbanist master Sean Yelland convey intrigue and a haunting sense of loneliness for different reasons.   “Distant” is reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth’s “Christina’s World”, while “Stop Everything” brings to mind the late night / early morning solitude evoked by Edward Hopper’s “Nighthawks” and “Early Sunday Morning”.   These pieces by Yelland also hint at his exceptional skill with the techniques of photorealism in his art — his depictions of  muted light, bokeh and blurring particularly stand out.
