Tristesse Seeliger is a Vancouver artist. Her multimedia works include collages, murals, paintings, and sculptures. She predominantly explores the ideas and metaphors around mapping as a tool of perception and orientation. In her newest abstract paintings, she explores shape, colour, and form influenced by the pathways water and creatures create on the land. These artworks are colour field paintings that explore movement, transparency, and opaque layers shifting across a plane.
Tristesse hosts an Artist Talk and Assignment series on YouTube called Studio to Studio. In this series, she interviews talented artists who give us insights into their practice and then assigns a creative project. This series started during the pandemic and just kept going.
