On the occasion of his 80th birthday, Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre presents a survey exhibition of work by David Seeger, a pioneer in contemporary ceramic art.
David Seeger is a master craftsman and a student of philosophy, Jungian psychology, and theories about the creative process. His sculpture highlights the ambiguity and interchangability between surface and volume, and often stimulates the tactile sense, alongside the visual senses of colour, shape and form. As a counterpoint to the methodical practice of ceramics, he also works in oil paint, drawing and other direct media. Latterly, in both his ceramics and paintings, he seeks to express his fascination with the implications of the “New Physics” – specifically quantum theory, where the certainty of the “uncertainty principle” prevails.
Over the years, in parallel with his personal ceramic practice, he taught at the Leeds College of Art /Leeds Polytechnic, was occasional visitor to The Royal College of Art, London and participated in several innovative crafts projects. His works have been exhibited widely throughout the UK and Europe, and are represented in numerous public and private collections. Since 1990, he has lived and worked in West Cork.
