Artist Spotlight: Bettina Sego
Bettina Sego’s work will be featured in FLAG’s (Florida Artist Group) annual exhibition.
To celebrate her achievement, we have a special feature of Bettina Sego’s newest work on the gallery walls. Niki Kottman from The Observer recently wrote, “Bettina Sego is another member who identifies as a mixed-media artist, and in this year’s exhibit she’s showcasing “Loosely in the Sky with Diamonds,” a mixed-media board with resin that’s part of her most recent series, a collection of ’60s-inspired works.
Asked what it is about this time period that piques her interest, Sego smiles and shrugs. She just loves the geometric style of the period and enjoys coming up with a personal interpretation of mid-century design.”
In addition to this collection of works, the gallery has her nature-inspired works on view. Bettina is a mixed media artist, using layers of ink, acrylic paint, collage, silver or gold leaf, and resin to create vibrancy and depth in her paintings. After studying in France and Germany, Sego was awarded a scholarship at San Francisco State University, where she received a Master of Arts Degree. Sego moved to Florida in 2000 and concentrated increasingly on experimenting with various art media, focusing mostly on acrylics, mixed media and collage.
