The artist/sculptor David Seils has revived an art
style that has been used for thousand of years to decorate walls and
the frieze of buildings, relief sculpture. In the past, artwork was
tediously carved in marble or limestone to only a depth of a few inches
to create the illusion of depth. With the advantage of new materials,
the same effect can be accomplished by building up the relief sculpture
instead of carving.
The artist is originally from West Salem, Wisconsin
and received formal art training at Viterbo College, La Crosse, Wisconsin;
The Clearing, a University of Wisconsin Extension; Madison, Wisconsin;
The University of Kansas; Lawrence, Kansas and the Ringling School of
Art in Sarasota, Florida.
