Seth Zimiles has been working as a sculptor in New York City and the surrounding area since the early 1990’s. He has had numerous group and solo shows of his work in Manhattan and in galleries throughout the Northeast. His compositions derive from his own poetic imagery, as well as an interest in exploring the expressive possibilities of different materials. Opposites can play against each other, such as a hard metal that appears organic and soft, or sharp forms imposing on soft forms. Whether in wax, metal, plastic, or clay, it is the immediacy of the process at which these materials react that help to give his sculpture mutability, and adds to the ephemeral nature of his work. Through his art he interprets the human experience. Personal, religious, and psychological themes permeate throughout his compositions. Figurative and non-figurative elements create a contextual landscape. His sculptures are inspired by liquidity and impermanence. These forms are fluid, and emerge as if they have undergone the effects of natural occurrences. His intent is for these works to arrest time, and appear as if they have been stopped while pursuing a perpetual course of action, in the same way a photograph will capture a fleeting moment or emotion.
This show is dedicated to Seth’s father who passed away on May 28th 2009.
