From the pubblisher:
Brett Charles Seiler's work encompasses elements of painting, drawing, installation and object art; text and language also play a major role. Sometimes poetic, nostalgic or romantic, it is a component of his art or also stands on its own as a work. In his paintings, the space is indeterminate, the figures are not located but sketchy and fleeting, the text elements seem spontaneous. The colouring moves in a narrow spectrum between black, grey, white and brown tones; mixed variations of the material he predominantly uses: Bitumen. Wood is also frequently used. These simple and rather rough materials, usually used in street or house construction, contrast with the intimate, tender pictorial situations. Gender, relationships, self-determination and self-discovery are central themes in his work. Coming from Zimbabwe, a state where homosexual acts between men are punishable, Seiler's works also set an example for equal sexual orientation.
"[My work] is a deep longing for understanding. Based on something I lack, something I cannot return to. Painting is a process of research." (Brett Seiler)
