Gathered together, Sealy’s paintings, several of them very ambitious in terms of scale and complexity, demonstrate that there is no division between life and art for her.
On one level, an air of relaxed domesticity dominates as we seem to wander from room to room, encountering family, friends and visitors.
In Sealy’s empathic attention, however, there is always a strong intimation of inner life and preoccupations in her subjects, a suggestion that we are glimpsing single instants in life stories that contain darkness as well as light. It is this underlying somberness that gives her work a gravity, which can take you unawares'.
