August 16th 6-8pm at Side Gallery for my latest exhibition.
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.
Please RSVP Leesa at The Side Gallery if you would like to come to the opening on the 16th. Or feel free to view the show until September 7th.
