Gretchen Seifert

Artists’s Statement

Music was my first art-form. I was trained as a classical musician. I grew up in the 60's and 70's at a time when music I was exposed to was more and more experimental, in an environment steeped in the New Music scene with Happenings and the intention of transparent interiority. My non-objective work comes from learning the habit of interiority, of exposing the non-verbal. They are a mirror of my deepest conversations with myself, experimental in nature, with the intention of accepting the depths of my human experience.


Gretchen Seifert’s artwork is in part, a view of the artist’s interest in healing trauma through visually representing the relationships between sensations, feelings, and memory. Using her training as a classical musician, Seifert is inspired by experimental music to create abstract mixed media paintings, drawings, and works on paper. As a photographer, Seifert’s journey using art as a way to interact with the world began through finding the moment to release the shutter to then show visually on paper how the artist experiences life. Gretchen Seifert has degrees from Boston University and Northwestern University in cello performance. She worked as a musician until the birth of her first child at which time she was given a camera which jump-started her love affair with visual art.Seifert then continued working as a professional photographer, and now works now primarily in mixed media.
