“ Seana Gavin. The cut and paste magician summoning a psychedelic universe with her collages” Wonderland Magazine
“Pass through Seana Gavin’s cut ‘ n’ paste portal into a New World”, The Lost Explorer
“Mesmerising Collages of life in Outer Space…” AnOther Magazine
“Seana Gavin's brightly spaced-out collages capture the acid-drenched mood of the zeitgeist. Evocative of everything from George Pal's 1960 vision of HG Wells's Time Machine to Ridley Scott's Blade Runner via Svankmeyer's Alice, Anger's Inauguration Of The Pleasure Dome, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and a heavy dose of the 90s rave culture…” Dazed & Confused Magazine
“on distant moons and remote mountaintops, crystals slowly grow starwards, while lichens, mosses and funghi creep across the landscape. mushroom clouds bloom on the horizon, while planets and insects hover under orange skies. as strange figures dance on hilltops, expressways cut through canyons made of rock and cities ..this is the strange and wonderful world of collage artist Seana Gavin's mind and art” super/collider
