IT'S ABOUT A MOMENT...

 

With a palette knife in one hand and a paintbrush in the other, Seattle-based artist Hannah Seki creates abstract paintings that capture fleeting moments — when one colored brushstroke meets another and forms ethereal imperfections. Her experimentation with rare color groupings, unique textures, and subtle, golden flecks tap into concepts of her Japanese heritage. Hannah’s process is fluent and organic; she starts with a set of colors and an overall feeling and ends with something exceptionally unintentional. She takes inspiration from her surroundings; from the vibrant colors of street art to the more understated and subdued natural landscape of Seattle.  She leaves room for surprise in her work while exploring energy, movement, and the balanced precision between light and dark. ​  

   

It's about a moment; a fleeting moment. It's about a feeling; an ethereal feeling. And it's all about the challenge of capturing that in a single brushstroke, then learning to walk away from it.
