Seven Plus One

Seven Plus One
Elizabeth Melton-Seabrook Chosen to Exhibit Her Art in a Solo Show
The auspicious number 7 seems to pop up in the most unlikely of places- even at the roots of my work. My artistic mentor, my maternal grandmother, had 7 sons and one daughter (my mother) and her carefully clipped magazine snippets and costume jewelry are featured in the central cephalopod of this show.

Having painted my fair share of octopuses over the past few years, I feel as if the creature is my kindred spirit. It represents things I have aspired to lately: flexibility- both physically and emotionally, adaptability to uncomfortable situations, and the ability to escape these precarious situations if deemed necessary. It may be no surprise, then, that I often arrive at the end of the painting only to realize that my subject has seven limbs rather than eight.

Seven plus one honors my past and helps me to explore future potential.
Raised in the South Carolina Lowcountry, I portray conventional, coastal images upon the unconventional surfaces of salvaged and repurposed materials. I thrive on combining the unexpected use of ordinary objects with the natural beauty of coastal wildlife.
