ARTIST STATEMENT + CV

INSTALLATION ART


Producing projects from concept to installation.  Adept at developing a storyline and translating it into an experiential interactive mise-en-scène.  Skilled at introducing disruptive elements into the tableau, using performance and/or the juxtaposition of contrary elements into a visual metaphor.

As an installation artist, Seggos focuses on incorporating variations of sculpture, assemblage, mixed media, performance, painting, photography, found objects, olfactory art, Digital art, and body adornment to tell a story within the tableau. Installation art enables Seggos to utilize various media while challenging her to maintain consistency in her work under one concept.  This allows her to experience her artistic process to the fullest, while pushing the boundaries of her creativity to the limit. 

Her work is self as well as culturally reflective in an emotionally responsive and experiential way, dealing with issues of process, space and time, environment, memories, transformation, automediality and relationship.


ARTIST STATEMENT

my works are explorations.  self-portraits.  expressive of personal transformation and my inner spirit, fears, dreams and passions.  they are metaphors for my life and my relationship to nature, beauty and the universe.  my emotions, thoughts and feelings are transmuted through my work, which manifests a deeper, more heartfelt, level of consciousness.

it is alchemy.

the intention:  an invocation of sensory response, preferably intense and profound
