Thoughts About Art and Community
Seleski works with medium to large scale digital photographs and video installation. Often drawing inspiration from complex queer identities, personal relationships, and self-reflective memories. Seleski is fascinated by the role still and moving images have in shaping our understanding of self and individuality. Their work explores how queer bodies are framed within contemporary photography, film, and popular culture. Currently they are researching personal and shared ephemeral experiences through cinematic structures and non-linear visual storytelling.
Seleski is fortunate to be included in various private collections and recipient of awards from Epson and Project 31. Seleski has exhibited locally in Toronto and recently participated in the inaugural Slide Slam at Red Hook Labs, New York.
