Ceili Seipke

When: Nov. 4-Dec. 8 2019

Working as a behavioral interventionist for 11 years so exhausted her, Seipke writes, that she abandoned her creative outlet, painting, and took up photography. But a solo exhibit of her images at the Davis Studio in South Burlington shows that Seipke still has plenty of juice. For “Who Are You?” she asked family members and friends to pose for her fantasy portraits. “Are you a fairy tale princess? An evil ruler?” she writes in an artist statement, referring to pretend roles her models might adopt. “We would go out on location or shoot in my garage,” she explains, “and I would refine the scenes in Photoshop.” On view are Seipke’s photographs on fine-art paper, with colored-pencil details.
