Caitie Sellers. Sellers’ work is informed by her observations of the many places she’s lived: from rural Virginia to Central America. She is interested in themes of urbanization, architecture, and social development. Sellers uses the local landscape to inspire her work for both the body and for the wall, drawing inspiration from free way systems, power lines, and the everyday industrialism we see past every day, but fail to recognize. “She seeks to find the familiar among common themes and ubiquitous materials such as brick, wire and asphalt. She transforms imagery of architecture and urban infrastructure into jewelry with her fine mastery of such metals as copper and silver.”
