Seth Lorenz
rabbit holes,
 
The essential meaning of my work deals with issues associated with dysfunctional domestic environments. I have realized that who I am is an outcome of what I have experienced correlated with how my psyche processed those experiences. Congruently, how I behave in the present stems from both current and past experiences creating constant opportunities for my psyche to change and heal, or inversely to repeat the same patterns.
My process reflects on suffering and trauma and translates those personal experiences into a sort of shared visual history. Material plays a large role in this process. I am inspired by how material can carry meaning through familiarity, installation, manipulation, and intuition. Each material has a visual history that is uniquely interpreted by each person before it. Because of this, the derivatives of meaning are more like branches from a tree. The roots of the tree are my intentions, the trunk is the physical object and the branches are its many meanings. The truth, is somewhere deep within a rabbit hole.

Constructed Horizons – Portfolio Exchange Exhibition
 
Historically, the idea of “American Landscape” summons imagery of sublime and seemingly endless skies, rivers, and mountains. However, today’s typical experience of landscape is quite different. We move through a grid-like environment that is constructed around the natural landscape. Grass, trees, and streams are surrounded with concrete; horizons slowly become structural and geometric, while buildings and power lines tower overhead.
Constructed Horizons aims to explore ideas and themes associated with contemporary expansion and the build environment. It seeks to strengthen the printmaking community by creating a dialogue about the evolving American landscape and the sprawling structures that are superimposed upon it. The non-traditional image size (10×30 inches) will engage the subject matter by challenging the artist to work in either panorama or in vertically stacked space.
