Levi Sebton’s project “Lately,” consists of a series of small scale paintings that form a personal journal through the mundanity of everyday life. With an eye for the ordinary, the pictures attempt to depict a presence in what is often overlooked and buried underneath.
Through a naivistic approach to painting, the pictures display a candidness in which the figurative motifs open up to an abstracting quality to convey something more than what immediately meets the eye.
“I view the exhibition as a self portrait in which the self is looking out instead of the reverse. The last months had been a transformative period and I wanted to capture it without being too literal; I wanted it to be a subtle gesture. With inspiration drawn from the earnestness of George W Bush’s self portraits in the shower and in the bath, through the subtle care of the still life paintings of Morandi, formulating the base of the language I wanted to portray.”
