Pure Beauty

“More abstract is the other new gallery artist, the accomplished Seid, who has shown in the Tucson Museum of Art Biennial, the UA and elsewhere. She makes&l her Wilde debut with three of her always marvelous mixed-media works, colored silk stretched across shaped copper and birch wood. The translucent silks are in impossibly rich reds and oranges. Their color changes depending on the shadows cast by the sculptural shapes below.

It’s a little bit old-fashioned to make homages to pure beauty, but that’s what Seid does. And come to think of it, so do plenty of these other artists. Their artistry makes trash and recyclables a match for Seid’s glistening silks and glowing copper.”
