Seth Clark's visual art "Rooftops I" and "Fragments V" appears in Issue No. 53: Shelter.
ROOFTOP I + FRAGMENTS V
Seth Clark’s work focuses on deteriorating architecture. These structures, designed to be huge forces of permanence, are continually being challenged, destroyed and forgotten. He sees an inherent honesty in the face of his subject. Among all of the clutter—the shards of wood and layers of rubble—there remains a gentle resolve. As Clark works, he studies these structures incessantly. The buildings, often on the brink of ruin, have something very energized and present trying to escape from their fragmented reality.
