In the moment I’m investigating: nature  | memory | ageing | cycles  | topography | place | impermanence | substance

From the Unfolding Surfaces Exhibition, 2018:

” Unfolding Surfaces; An exploration into memory and impermanence is Tiel Seivl-Keevers’ investigative series into the artist’s memory-based

and site specific nostalgia of found objects. Tiel accumulates collections of botanical and fibrous items from natural surroundings and builds

layers upon layers of marks and etchings which resonate with the object’s form.

Impermanence as a concept mirrors a resonation with nature; seasons and cyclical change.

These marks and etchings too have an inherent impermanence as Tiel covers and uncovers, marks and unmarks, folds and unfolds.

Tiel sews these concepts together with representative Australian flora symbols collected on her journeys.

The resulting works in this series, regardless of medium, always uncovers another memory of a journey on foot through the Australian landscape.”

Laura Brinin, Curator

Texture, line and colour are elements that echo as I work through the passage of developing a blank surface to a finished image. I build layers. I erase. I assemble. I alter. I scratch and carve, then stitch and mend until I am satisfied that I have captured the atmosphere and intricacies that nature provides.

Exploring the physical journey of being within a place that can provoke memory; mapping points and connections. Expressing sensations of how nature impacts our emotions. The expression of air, water, earth, fire, smell, sound and touch collide onto one surface where the audience can see all these layers.

A career as a Graphic Designer, Illustrator, University and TAFE teacher in Visual Arts, Design and Multimedia in Queensland and Victoria.
