Artist Resource Center Gallery: Amanda Seckington
“To the Harbormaster”
November 6 – January 9, 2016
Opening Reception: November 20, 5-8 pm
In the Artist Resource Center Gallery, November 6th, 2015 through January 9th 2016, we will feature the solo work of Amanda Seckington showing her series “The Harbormaster”.
“My work is very personal yet it resembles an old mythical tale, folklore, or pictorial love song.
Using an arsenal of images that I have made a connection to throughout my lifetime, I have
created my own symbolism. This is often a play on clichés found in classic mythos. The scenes depicted in my work are not obscure but are parallels to specific events in my life. The recurrent elements that compile the narrative are the warship (“the mental-self”), the women (“the physical self”), their relationship to one another and the landscape they exist within. Maritime international signal flags are often an element used to provide a visual phrase that underlines the narrative. The fixation on ships and seafaring themes in general stems from growing up as a navy brat on various military bases, summer journeys spent with my grandparents on their sailboat and living the majority of my life no more than a short drive from the ocean. This background is also responsible for the creation of the individual I call the “Constant Wanderer.” Having moved more than 30 times in my 27 years of life, home becomes everywhere and nowhere at once. This has created a wistful undertone that accompanies each piece.”
