Through the Dark

Georgie Seccull

Georgie Seccull’s new work searches to make sense of existence amidst unending patterns of creation and destruction.

We are born out of chaos in darkness and come into the light– my process is much the same: creation & destruction. I cut up big sheets of metal into a million pieces then scatter them on the ground and begin picking them up one by one. Working almost like a jigsaw puzzle, I allow the pieces to come together organically and dictate the outcome.

Her steel sculptures of nocturnal creatures are inspired by the cycles of life, death and rebirth in both the natural and unnatural world. Her narrative addresses our individual and collective perceptions of polarities in existence, and how these observations inform our reality.

Seccull’s style is organic from concept to completion. Working by hand, she submerges herself into the creative flow state; allowing hard steel to be become fluid songs of motion, transmitting the sinuous grace of the natural world.
