Seth is a Seattle based multimedia artist whose current work emphasizes large scale painting choreographies. Raised on a farm in Chimacum, Washington, he spent his childhood summers alternately mowing fields, stacking hay bails and studying ballet. He left dance to pursue an education in biochemistry at the University of Washington and later went on to receive a BFA in painting. He began a successful collaboration with metal artist Cathy McClure called SID INC. This collaboration focused on multi-media installations and led to subsequent collaborations with artists internationally. Seth moved to Panajachel, Guatemala and spent 3 years studying Tzu'tu'jil and the indigenous arts and rituals of the Mayan people of the Atitlan region. Having returned to Seattle and to Modern and Contemporary Dance practices, he continues to incorporate the labors, rituals and patterns of agrarian society with visual and performing arts. He has showcased his collaborative multimedia choreographies at Seattle based institutions such as Velocity Dance Center, On the Boards, Jack Straw New Media Gallery, Hedreen Gallery, Soil Gallery, Bumbershoot and others. He is currently self-represented and takes clients on a limited basis. Inquire about his availability for commissions and collaborations.
