Feasting on Art – Roselle Park Resident
Leona M Seufert displays artwork at
Garden of Eden Cafe
Artist Leona M Seufert displays 2 digital prints as part of Hoboken Hob’art’s group show at the Garden of Eden Café, 226 Washington St. 2nd floor, Hoboken NJ. The show runs through September 12, 2008. Seufert creates her works using conventional media enhanced by technology. A self-professed “computer geek” she has, over the last 3 years, experimented with the unlimited possibilities to realize her creative dreams through the use of Photoshop and more recently, digital photography. Her starting point is either a digital photograph, or a scanned paper collage or a photograph. Then in a dialog between her eyes, her soul, and technology, and using Photoshop to manipulate the images, she aims to unlock the story within the image. Each artwork is the result of many experiments, the process is an artistic delight for her and the result enchanting to the viewer.
Her two prints on display, Old Barn and Photo-synthesis, are part of a larger body of work, a series where her objective was to discover how Photoshop could alter the original image to create something new. She did not apply its filters simply for the sake of obtaining effects, but rather like a painter experiments with new brushes, to see what these effects could contribute to the original image.
Seufert has had solo shows and her artwork has appeared in numerous group shows in the NYC Metropolitan area and Potsdam, NY. She graduated from New York City’s prestigious high school for art, The High School of Art & Design and holds a BA in Theatre Arts from the State University College of Arts and Science, Potsdam. Seufert is a member of the Hob’Art cooperative gallery, a group comprised of membership from Hoboken and the surrounding areas existing primarily to serve the community by providing a showcase for fine art. Garden of Eden Café is located on the 2nd floor above the Garden of Eden Gourmet Market on Washington St. one of Hoboken’s main streets. Patrons can purchase their salads and sandwiches downstairs then retreat to this tastefully decorated dining area.
