Seana Reilly & her respiratorApproximately seven years ago Seana Reilly decided to call it quits on her previous architectural career and move back to the east coast to make a go of it as an artist. She spent a couple years figuring out what she should be making, experimenting mostly. A visiting artist from the UK showed her something new he’d developed in his studio – liquid graphite. She likens it to hearing a song for the very first time that she somehow already knew. This medium expressed the way nature moves and it needed precise measurements, but it also imposed a distinct lack of control over the final product. Using this built-in framework, she started making drawings/paintings that simultaneously addressed both western science and eastern philosophy, two ways of seeing that she had been trying to align for most of her life.

Seana lives in Atlanta and currently has a studio at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. She has work in the High Museum’s Drawing Inside the Perimeter show and at Stanley Beaman Sears both until late September 2013. You can also see her work at Hartsfield Jackson International Airport’s T-Concourse until January 2014.
