Statement

Heike Seefeldt is a native German, who has been working as a professional scenic artist for about twelve years. She graduated with First Class Honors from the University of Fine Arts in Dresden, Germany, where she received her MFA in Fine Arts, specializing in Theatre Arts. The Department of Fine Arts at this historic and reputable University is unique since it is the only one offering an MFA program in Germany. Heike combined her passion for traveling, art, and theater by working for a wide range of theaters in Europe and the USA. The diverse backgrounds and visions of these theaters allowed Heike to utilize her many different skills, be creative, and expand her technical repertoire. Theaters she worked for in Europe include the 'Semper Oper' in Dresden (Germany), the 'Burg Theater' in Vienna (Austria), and the 'Luzerner Theater' in Lucerne (Switzerland).

In 2004, Heike settled in San Francisco, and has since been working for a great variety of theater-, tv-, and mural-companies in the Bay Area. Examples are the CalShakes (Scenic Charge Artist), the Berkeley Repertory Theater, A.C.T., the Marin Theater Company, the San Jose Repertory Theater, the Nappa Valley Repertory Theater, the Intersection for the Arts, and many more. Since 2005 she has been running her painting business ‘pintofpaint' in San Francisco.

Heike's work includes scenic painting and her personal fine arts, as well as private commissions for companies and individuals (e.g. murals, copies of fine arts 'Masters', modern paintings, and more).
More of her artworks can be found on her website www.pintofpaint.com

Heike Seefeldt's collage work questions the extent to which raw information is manipulated and channeled by media, politics and religious messages, by arranging and manipulating diverse materials, and adding additional highlights with markers, paint, and clear coats, amongst others. The holy symbols for example are found upside-down, torn and cut apart, questioning the definition of ‘men's general beliefs, artworks, either as a sequence of small canvases of pieces of a larger painting or a whole piece, explores the
decorative in allusion to the media. Each piece exists as a work of art, individually, or as a whole.
