Residency at Vermont Studio Center

"The Vermont Studio Center was founded by artists in 1984. Our location--situated along the banks of the Gihon River in the historic village of Johnson, Vermont--was chosen with the intention of fostering creativity through community, collaboration, and quiet reflection supported by the unspoiled beauty of the northern Green Mountains."

"Over the last 30 years, VSC has grown to become the largest international artists' and writers' residency program in the United States. Our mission is to provide studio residencies in an inclusive, international community, honoring creative work as the communication of spirit through form."

                                          courtesy https://vermontstudiocenter.org/history

I am honored to accept a 1 month residency and receive a VSC Merit Grant of 1000$

I look forward to the time and space to create deeply and think wildly...

Storefront Media: Screening Launch at King County Arts Commssion

Storefront Media: Screening Launch at King County Arts Commssion

SETH SEXTON

DYBBUK

A contemporary dance film short, DYBBUK is a compelling ghostlike love story that shows the creation of a painting through film, dance, and performance.

 

Screening Launch: Thursday, May 3, 6:00 — 8:00 pm

DYBBUK is Loosely based on the play written by the Russian playwright S. Ansky and also inspired by an adapted film by Michal Waszynski and a production made by Jerome Robbins for New York City Ballet.

Sexton’s interests in the intersection of movement and visual art-making transformed the original narrative of DYBBUK into a mixed-media cinematic painting. He is moved by creative spirits in his dance and when he makes visual art. DYBBUK is, in part, about the complexity of possession. Sexton is also concerned with the divinity of form, the power of gesture and the transformation of space through installation. He uses DYBBUK as a means to explore the veil in the thresholds between artistic media, highlighting overarching aspects of texture, opacity, allegories of seeing, specters and their garments, the karmic wheel, the construct of order and disorder, life and death, and most importantly the disintegration of boundaries.
