Meet the Artist - Yori Seeger
Education is at the heart of my practice. I am a sculptor working in media and equipment that range from iron, cement and wood to laser cutters, pedagogy and the human experience. I incorporate all materials that I feel are appropriate in order to convey my ideas which focus primarily on the human figure. I deconstruct, re-orient and arrange elements to forge a connection with those who view my work. No two pieces or projects are quite the same, yet all my artwork has a common thread to evidence the hand that made it. I am putting my energy now into a large scale, multiple figure public sculpture that will be housed in a prominent place at Visual Philosophy Studio. I aim to teach through the making and displaying of this work, the subject of which is an allegory of the history of sculpture education.
