Durand Seay

A brief work description

The paintings of Durand Seay, artist and architect, are motivated by a duality of structures found in nature and the expressions of time. There is an association to symbols of balance, serenity, spirituality, and how we connect as a people. The work is surreal at times, exploring the subconscious mind through fantastic imagery. With his intuitive character, guided by spontaneity, he expresses a sensual and abstractive language. Space becomes form like an architect implanting an idiom of time through movement. Seay’s thought is like a camera, capturing that instant feeling of the wind against ones face.
He will always ask you, “How does the work make you feel, the emotion evoked?”
