"Seth’s layered compositions seem to ebb towards something darker than the sea, shifting and flexing with figurative familiarities hauntingly appearing through their abstract veils and upon thought after viewing such things, one might ponder that the chaos which surrounds us is not unlike the beauty in Scantlen’s paintings."
