vis-à-vis/ Emily Berger and Claire Seidl

Catalogue Essay - The Painting Center
...Seidl is constantly responsive to what’s on the canvas before her. Her work reiterates her process, claiming every touch and gesture. For her, painting involves an on-going experimentation with the medium and its possibilities. As her work is so process-driven, it’s in constant flux up to the moment it finds resolution. Each painting is the consequence of the fluidity and mutability of paint, color relationships and action within a given territory. She cultivates an allusive image, one constructed from a complex, nuanced and layered space.
