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.
Upstairs Project Space
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.

BFA Senior Exhibition “OF EACHOTHER” opens Nov. 30 at TCU Moudy


The Art Galleries at TCU is pleased to announce:
TCU BFA Studio Art Senior Exhibition
Featuring Sydney Williams
Moudy Gallery
Reception Monday, November 30, 5 – 7 pm
November 30 – December 4
Moudy Gallery presents Sydney Williams’ graduating solo exhibition Of Eachother. The exhibition opens Monday, November 30th with a reception from 5-7pm. The show runs through December 4. Moudy Gallery is open weekdays from 11 am4 pm.
In this anticipated exhibition, Sydney Williams scales her practice to the largest capacity for a singular installation. Three-dimensional porcelain shapes are reproduced in multiples using strict parameters, and are then installed in a grid referencing the architecture of the gallery space. Despite starting from a strict system, Williams creates a space in which organic intuition can reside by remaining sensitive to the various ways in which her objects relate. It is within these parameters that she explores how difference is found and what relationships can manifest. The viewer is faced with the tension of macro vs micro and intuition vs system. Between these boundaries lies a phenomenological engagement with the work.
Moudy Gallery is located at 2805 S. University Drive in Moudy Building North, Fort Worth, TX 76129.
For more information about exhibitions, images for press, or other activities of the Art Galleries at TCU, please contact Sara-Jayne Parsons, Curator, s.j.parsons@tcu.edu, 817-257-2707, or Devon Nowlin, Gallery Manager, devon.nowlin@tcu.edu, 817-257-2588.
