    Stacy Seiler


    Stacy Seiler is a multi-disciplinary artist, journalist, designer and educator. Her work explores the psychological impact that architecture plays upon its inhabitants in states of both presence and absence. In her practice, Stacy utilizes charcoal, cut paper collage, photography, fibers and sculptural objects as a means of channeling the past into the present. Her desire is to communicate the importance of architectural preservation within our culture and spark a curiosity for viewers to investigate the history contained within each structure. Her work has been exhibited internationally in such notable institutions as: Sotheby's, CH, The Guggenheim Estate, Fashion Institute of Technology, The Swiss General Consulate, NY, The National Arts Club and The Painting Center. She has been interviewed by Drawing Magazine and The Boston Globe.

Prior to IRK, she was the Contributing Writer of Arts and Culture at Downtown Magazine, NY (2011-2016). Stacy began her role as a Part-time Assistant Professor at Parsons in 2005, following a 10-year career as a Graphic/Web Designer and Programmer working for such notable firms as Agora Publishing, e.magination and Sundberg & Associates while specializing in the corporate identity, branding and information design/architecture of Fortune 500 companies. Selected Clients: Andy Borowitz: The Borozitz Report, News Corporation, McGraw Hill, AIG, Fleet-Meehan, Battery Park City Authority and Waverly Home.
