About the artist
Tristesse Seeliger is a Vancouver artist working in mixed media using painting and collage. Tristesse's work has been featured in Scout Magazine, VancouverIsAwesome and Inside Vancouver as well as art blogs For Example out of London and Design is Kinky in Australia. Tristesse has collaborated with Lululemon on window design and her work has shown in different cities in North America. For the past two 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 and colour 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. Tiles - More recently Tristesse has begun to work with the shapes as separate paneled colour-fields, using the relationship between the shapes to create the illusion of three dimensionality. These are painted acrylic works that are a celebration of colour and form allowing the audience to interact with the work by assembling the pieces in any way they desire. Tristesse Seeliger has been an art teacher for 16 years with the Vancouver School Board, is a graduate of Emily Carr University of Art and Design, a wife to David Crompton and a mom of two beautiful children.
