Working only from life, still life painter Claudia Seymour has found her perfect niche. “My focus is the light-filled interaction between objects, their colors, highlights and shadows, and the ambiance created by their surroundings,” she says. The artist uses flowers and fruits, antiques and vintage textiles, as well as manmade and found objects in her set-ups. “I love being a studio painter,” she says, “as it gives me total control over what I portray.”
Having lived all over the United States and in England, Seymour’s exposure to and interest in art have been a life-long affair. She and her husband collected paintings from wherever they lived and traveled long before she became a painter. Now her paintings are a “personal expression of a lifelong fascination with the visual effects of color as revealed by the play of light across a tableau.”
Seymour is President Emerita of the historic Salmagundi Club in New York City. Her efforts there helped to restore the Club’s reputation as the home and bullwork for quality realist art in the United States. She is a Master Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, a Master Circle Member of the International Association of Pastel Societies, and a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America. Seymour’s award-winning classic florals and still lifes in both oil and pastel have been shown in many juried exhibitions.
Upcoming shows include a two-person exhibition at J.M. Stringer Gallery in Vero Beach, Florida, titled Harmony in Contrast—Recent Paintings by E.J. Paprocki and Claudia Seymour from February 10 through March 5. —
