Interact is pleased to present a solo display of work by visual artist Andrew Seymour at Minnesota Orchestra Hall in conjunction with the December 3 and 4 Richard Strauss concerts. Seymour’s vibrant patterned drawings, featuring large congregations of circular forms, will be on view in the Balcony A Lobby as the orchestra performs Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life), an autobiographical tone poem that Strauss wrote in 1898.
Much like Ein Heldenleben, Andrew Seymour’s work is autobiographical. Almost every piece that he has created in the last decade is titled Summer – a reference to his mother’s lake cabin in northern Minnesota. Seymour describes the circular forms throughout his work as people, and they appear in every piece. In some cases, they represent family at the lake or artists in the studio. Seymour begins each piece by drawing a circle in the top left corner of the composition, then creating columns and rows of circles that echo the forms of musical notes across a page.
Seymour, who has practiced at Interact since 2002, has presented work in venues throughout Minnesota, including The White Page, Interact Gallery, Artspace Jackson Flats, and the Bridgewater Lofts. In 2021, he collaborated with New York-based accessories label KARA in conjunction with the launch of their Spring 2021 collection.
Below are a few selections from Seymour's solo display at Orchestra Hall. You can find more of his available work in his artist collection here.
