  • Via Margutta 83 artwork by Joyce Seymore - art listed for sale on Artplode

About Artist:

Joyce Seymore is a photographer working in Wilton, Connecticut. In the winter of 2011, the photographer spent seven weeks as a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome, where she photographed the graffiti, tattered posters, and peeling surfaces of Roman walls. Forty of these photos were included in her open studio at the Academy–From the Walls of Rome: Intimate Abstraction. They have since been exhibited at The National Arts Club in New York, NY. 

About Artwork:

Joyce Seymore has always has been drawn to what often goes unnoticed, the ephemeral, the imperfect and worn. In her close-up photographs of Roman walls, details become abstractions, isolated from the larger context in which she finds them. Through these abstractions she tries to capture the texture of the city, the fragile beauty of its ever-evolving surfaces-- the crumbling plaster, layered with tattered posters, graffiti, and over-painting-- a canvas on which each generation for millennia has left its mark. During her time at the American Academy in Rome, she wandered the streets and piazzas, always looking, always searching for images that suggest the hidden nature of that remarkable city. When she later returned to Rome, she found some of the subjects she had photographed already had disappeared; some were partially obscured, some were exactly the same. All had become part of the palimpsest that is the Eternal City.
