After working and showing for an extensive period in Europe and the US Seymour is back sculpting, drawing, and creating on Australian soil. In conjunction with Wellingtons master of pop and lowbrow art, Eyeball Kicks, Seymour is proud to present his first solo show in New Zealand in over 6 years titled ‘Aspects of Syncretism’.
Syncretism is the art of fusing different, at times, contradictory beliefs from various schools of thought, being religion, philosophy or ontology.
The black and white show is inspired by the eclectic religions, mythology and theology that he was exposed to during his travels home through South East Asia. As you can imagine, Seymour dwelled into theses themes through his art. So that, the aesthetic of the show combines artistic, religious and cultural impressions taken from a set of varied beliefs and traditions. All the pieces are original ink drawings, however he will also display plushes and limited edition prints.
Working mostly on site during his journey, the show presents a collection of small daily drawings; a visual progression and documentation summerising the aspects of Syncretism as he experienced them. The show will also include a body of large scale reflective pieces completed in the months after his return. Fans of Seymours vivid, fanciful and dark signature style are sure to love viewing this latest collection first hand and are invited to the opening of ‘Aspects of Syncretism’ at ‘Eyeball Kicks’ June 28th at 7pm.
If I had a ticket to Wellington, I would not only love to say ‘hi’ to a dear friend, but I would indulge myself in this very personal Seymour show. So share and spread the word and anyone in Wellington or flying to there, do not miss it!
