Ben Sellick

About The Artist

Ben Sellick is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto. His recent works are assemblages of thousands of tiny pieces of paper.

Sellick cuts and produces the pieces with a three-hole-punch and desktop spiral binding machine. Then, using an X-Acto blade, tweezers and glue, he meticulously and methodically arranges each individual piece, one at a time, into various shapes, patterns and forms. The process is a highly repetitive performative act which demands concentration, commitment and dedication.

Sellick studied Illustration at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ont., and graduated in 2004.

Rings of Memory

Artist Ben Sellick’s concept is based on tree rings, which are natural records of growth and change over time. The rings are visual reminders to times passed. No set of tree rings is the same as another, just as no people or sets of memories are the same. We can be similar and have shared experiences, but we are all unique unto ourselves. We all have our own individual stories. Memories are our sacred portals to our own personal histories.

Materials used: Paper and Paint.
