Graham Seaton’s work emerges from his long held interest in everyday objects, and, more recently, their possible reference to forms of architecture and urban landscapes.

Using basic casting processes he presents objects in new arrangements and contexts, stripping them of their original identity and function to put them to use in new and suggestive ways. Seaton’s installations vary according to the nature and size of the site in which they are constructed and re-constructed.  The site and its contents become part of the installation, its scale and function automatically colouring, and being coloured by the work.These miniature cities dramatise the way we experience space, using illusions of scale and depth to tap into the imaginary dimension of our most basic perceptions.

Seaton is a recent MA graduation of Wimbledon School of Art and has had a solo installation at Chisenhale Gallery, London.  Following his show at The Economist he exhibited at Hales Gallery in South-East London.
