Ritchie Sedeyn continuniously searches for new ways to create his images. Coming from a long history of photography, he explores new ways like paint, collages and even 3d printing with a 3D-pen. These techniques are just a vehicle to get a step closer into his story of memory, hopes and emotions. He finds his inspiration in metaphors, old paintings and fantsay.
Projectatelier at Antwerp, Belgium, guides him in achieving his goal, by his own means.
Ritchie Sedeyn (°1980, Ghent, Belgium) makes painting and drawings from past memories and tries to rearrange them to fit his daily life. His works can be seen as a language or voice to the audience he never had in the past. Past memories of trouble and social akwardness sculpts his way into Ritchie's work every time again. It is an assembly of feelings of disconnection and loneliness towards a hopefull future of the abstract and untouchables in every day life.
Ritchie Sedeyn often take part of a exhibition or organises exhibitions himself to show his latest work. However, as it is to be expected, no new exhibitions are planned due tot the corornacrisis.
