AL Artist of the Year 2014–2015
A deep-south Alabama artist and architect, 60-year-old Durand Seay escapes from traditions that label artists by location. His paintings offer a plastic, flowing, and unpredictable expression, ever changing like water in a stream.
As an architect, Seay delivers an understanding of space and the movement within. Therein, time and movement is an essential factor which affects the participant. He builds these expressions from structures intuitively 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 instill insight, achievement and the ascendancy of understanding.
With numerous exhibitions all over the southeast since 1978, Seay receives consistent award recognition such as Directors Award, LaGrange Biennial 2016.
