|Portrait of Wind
A new series of circular works. The rectangular format presented to me by the camera is no more real or true than anything else. Since the picture plane in my work doesn't represent X and Y in space (it represents X and Time), I might as well change the coordinate system to be degrees instead of horizontal and vertical. It's the difference between looking at a map of the world and looking at a globe.
Abstract, yet still photographic in its depiction of rivers, streams and oceans, this ongoing series is all about flowing water. The unique properties of Seale's camera capture the ebb and flow of water, the result of which is reminiscent of Color Field painting from the 50's and 60's.
