Tristesse has collaborated with Lululemon on window design and her work has shown in different cities in North America. For the past four years, she has been working on a body of work focused on geometry, territories, perception, and cartography. Using the principles in mathematics of tiling and patterning, the work disassembles and then reassembles maps that focus on the shapes, textures, & color to recreate new territories. These collages are part abstractions part designed object that use universal language to communicate alternate modes of perceiving land and space. Seeliger's work continues to expand into new areas by experimenting with process and medium. She maintains a regular studio practice at The Arts Factory at 281 Industrial Ave off Main Street in Vancouver. Studio visit by appointment only. Tristesse Seeliger is represented by South Main Gallery and Vancouver Art Rental and Sales at the VAG.
