House of Altars - Seth Thompson

  • Details
  • Description

Seth Thompson’s House of Altars presents a series of richly detailed interiors of private homes, stores, and churches made during fourteen years of travel to remote mountain ranches and towns in central Mexico. The images celebrate the vernacular design and unique handmade quality of the places, and indirectly, of the lives lived within them. They explore similarities of form between the homes and sacred spaces. To the delight of the artist, trained as a painter, they also reveal a formal kinship with the interiors of French modernist painting. The images were made with available light, usually minimal, which has its own structure and beauty of color.
