Virginia based artist Seth Havercamp studied at The Cleveland Institute of Art, the Memphis College of Art and Carson-Newman College. He continued his study with Robert Liberace at the Art League and Nelson Shanks at Studio Incamminati.
Havercamp concentrates on figures, portraits and still life. In the latter, he takes a fascinatingly textural approach that at times lends his oil paintings some of the surface quality of pastel. He carries some of those characteristics into the backgrounds of his portraits and figures, creating a visually engaging contrast with the more refined areas.
Throughout, there is a keen attention to edges and value relationships that give his compositions both harmony and drama.
Seth Havercamp is married to painter Catherine Havercamp, and his family often features prominently in his work.
