Contain Me

I continue to work on "Self Contained" - my collaboration with Viv and Step. Each of us have created our own art structure that all three of us work in three different times. It is all about what lies within. Things that may be unspoken and things that are often hidden. Raw, grungy, rough, messy, and all our selves. One very special and unique aspect to this project is that we all create on and over each other's artwork. A true collaborative effort!

A few glimpses of my most recent work in Viv's piece. Click to enlarge.

Very bold and moving! Love the tremendous depth, layering, vivid variations of texture and colors- and of course- the selection of those wonderful words!

Great set of shots. And great timing - I'm working on a dummy of a chapbook at the moment and right now after seeing your pieces, I'm thinking that I need to do a neat and plain version AND a more interesting wild version! See what your work does!!

You have the imagination that others lack, you see what others don't. Please continue making wonderful art. I want to be you when I grow up!!

Great colours once again. They are the pinacle of raw, grungy, rough and messy in the best possible way.

Gaby Bee said...

It's fun to see the layering of your different styles coming through Seth! I can see you in these pages, and yet i see it's not just you. I just love that aspect of the full collaborative effort - opening ourselves and letting go of the attachment to our own work. So while the theme may be contained, the process is anything but :)

WIshing you all the best this holiday season. Thank you for the past year of sharing and inspiring work you've done - I look forward to what you bring forth in the new year!!
