Description

From Hinduism to Christianity to ancient Celtic religion and Greek mythology, the archetype of a three-headed god - or a triadic deity - appears throughout texts and oral traditions. Here, Doris Seidler presents an abstracted, triadic being in a crown and veil, her linework emblematic of her early career, Cubist and Surrealist-influenced years that were honed in the studio of Atelier 17 in New York. Much of Seidler’s figurative work at this time was wrought in fractal, angular planes filled with patterns and textures, exhibiting the artist’s exploration of the intaglio plate. Her style constantly evolved, often changing with the medium.
