Durand Seay – Abstracts – Artist Portfolio Magazine

A deep-south Alabama artist, 61 years old, Durand Seay seeks the escape from traditions that label artists by location. His painting provides a plastic, flowing, and unpredictable expression. Ever changing like water in a stream, taking him with open eyes.
Seay studied architecture which taught an understanding of space and the movement within space. Therein, time and movement as an essential factor, affects the participant. Working as an architect, he builds these expressions from structures found in nature. There is a language with a quantum perspective, past, present, and future all at once. Like the fluidity of waves he harnesses a viewer’s subconscious to instil awareness, insight, achievement and the ascendancy of understanding.
Seay’s art manifests a personal exploration into the subconscious as his work utilizes an intuitive technique, guided by spontaneity. But like Salvador Dali, he creates his own dialect and perspective of symbol. It is his similarities to Boccioni, he utilizes the abstraction to express movement in space and do it in three dimension. In particular, he notes Boccioni’s Unique Forms of Continuity in Space (1913)
