'It is from our awareness of transendent reality and our response to concrete reality that our minds command us on our way - not really on a path or to a gate - but to full response.'
Agnes Martin 1977, 'What is real?'
'Seeing things' displays David Sequeira’s continuing interest in colour and geometry. 1960’s black and white photographic prints of churches, hallways and palaces are the settings for David’s geometric diagram-like forms which appear as some kind of strange phenomena silently floating within and around these architectural spaces. The intensity of colour and deliberate brush marks of these forms assert David as the creator of this phenomena. Sequeira’s contemplative geometric diagrams can be seen as representing a momentary experience of architectural space extending sensory perception and making the invisible visible.
'What is God? He is length, width, height and depth.'
St Bernard of Claivaux, On consideration
