Durand Seay, artist and architect, BA in Architecture, Auburn University Website: www.durandseay.com The paintings of Durand Seay are driven by his intrinsic connection to structures found in nature and the expressions of time. The work harnesses the viewer’s subconscious to instill awareness, insight, achievement and the ascendancy of personal virtue. The work, surreal at times, explores fantastic imagery. His intuitive character guides the spontaneity to express an abstract language. Space becomes form like an architect implanting an idiom of time through movement and liquidity. Seay’s thought is like a camera, capturing that instant feeling of the wind against ones face. His work has been exhibited in numerous juried exhibitions all over the southeast since 1978, and recently in 2012 “B-12” Wiregrass Museum Biennial, Dothan, Alabama and in 2009 “Imaginary Journeys”, Trevisan Arte Internationale invitational exhibition, Ferarra, Italy.
