Artwork / 2017

In 2017, Empathetic Magic was my primary focus, with the first half of the year consumed almost entirely by creating the bulk of that series and getting it covered by Bust among other noteworthy publications. Still, I managed to make some paintings outside of Empathetic Magic, and this gallery is proof of that.

In March, I traveled to Quebec to speak about copyright and creativity as keynote speaker at the 4e Colloque de l’Association pour le Développement Technologique en Éducation.

In April, I published an article about discrimination in the art world on the Clark Hulings Fund Learning Portal. This was especially important to me as the piece had previously been censored by Professional Artist magazine.

In August, Frédéric Urbain of Framablog interviewed me, as did Marie Guibouin of the Pink Power Tour Festival. In September, it was The Filmmakers Podcast and At the Shore. In December, I made my second appearance on the excellent and inspiring podcast Your Creative Push!

“[Seemel] is an activist in many domains as well as being an accomplished artist.”
