Stacy Seiler is a multi-disciplinary artist, journalist and design educator based in New York City. Her work explores the psychological impact that architecture plays upon its inhabitants in states of both presence and absence. Beginning with a deep-dive into the history and antiquated technology of defunct 19th and 20th century industrial structures, Stacy’s practice utilizes drawing, cut paper collage, photography, digital print 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 compelling history contained within each structure. Stacy received her BFA in Fine Art with a minor in Art History from the Maryland Institute College of Art and her MFA in Drawing from Parsons School of Design. She has exhibited internationally in notable institutions, including Sotheby's, CH, The Guggenheim Estate, Fashion Institute of Technology, The Swiss General Consulate, NY, The National Arts Club and The Painting Center.
In addition to her art practice, Stacy is the Art Editor of IRK Magazine, Paris for which she conducts interviews and writes feature articles on the work of innovative artists and designers from around the world. Stacy also holds an extensive background in design education and curriculum development. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Design Strategies at Parsons School of Design and has instructed courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Parsons Paris and Drew University.
