My Artist Statement

Durand Seay utilizes painting in search for symbols of balance, serenity, spirituality, and how we connect as a people. To feel the story, the abstractions guide the viewer’s impressions. These legacies of layers, studies in organic constructions arrive from a pursuit influenced by his architecture and a fascination with structures found in nature.

His success in architecture is due in part to his ability to perceive space, not strictly as an enhanced volume to contain, but as an experience that is directly affected by the user, psychologically through movement and time. This thoughtful awareness affects the sculpting of space and form, weaving enhanced experiences.

My Location

I am located in Montgomery, Alabama.
