I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but it makes me crave a big city. A city with bustling sidewalks and tall buildings. Mr. Forager and I are still trying to figure out if we’re urban or small town people. The work of British Columbian artist Jennifer Seymour definitely has me leaning toward big city life.
Seymour’s works begin as photographs she’s saved and collected over time and are then reworked with layers of charcoal, pastel and glaze resulting in pieces that glow. It’s as if all those reflective surfaces and city lights are caught in one hurried moment after another.
These mixed media works capture what I love most about urban centers– the energy, that glimpse of mountains or river just beyond the skyscrapers, the feeling of endless possibility and opportunity.
To see more of Jennifer Seymour’s work, please visit her website. I’ll be here in yet another small town, dreaming of a more metropolitan life. 😉
