Starr's work as an abstract Action Painter has been displayed and performed at galleries all over the United States including New York and San Francisco. His work has been recognized as ground breaking and has drawn comparisons to the work of Jackson Pollock and Marc Chagall.
"Lyrical and emotionally evocative, Sean Starr’s intensely realized paintings capture the viewer’s interest at first sight. Starr’s fluid, spontaneous style is reminiscent of Jackson Pollock’s action painting, while his imaginative color choice and thick pigments recall the work of Chagall. Starr has created his own version of Abstract Expression, one that incorporates the immediacy of inspiration. His complex rendering of light and shadow adds a meditative dimension to his vivid color choices; the viewer sees a comprehensive wholeness to his canvases. His compositions recall the movement of a wild dance, in which the viewer is as free to participate as the artist himself."
