Beth Seiters

artist's statement.

I like to think that my work is that of the anatomy of the human body or any mammal-being: the arrangement and support of the bones, which props the organs, who are sustained by the fluids, all maintaining the brain [mind].
I draw to record/document a memory of incident, sight, or setting. The drawing acts merely as a backbone to a potential perception of that thing, which is then expressed through the five human senses. Once the “negative” is developed, painting strangely transforms the once desolate organization into a now grounded arrangement of voices, movements – ranging from loud, quiet, gentle, and fierce.
