Last August, Dedham-based artist Kira Seamon made her “Stained Glass Sky” debut at the Wellesley Free Library. Since then, Kira’s work has splashed color on the walls of several libraries, including Medfield’s. For a special reception, Kira spent the afternoon of February 14 in the Dailey Room, where she discussed her art and set the mood for Valentine’s Day with a piano performance.
Kira’s art is simply and utterly unique. The bright and colorful geometric designs are impossible to miss, especially in contrast to the neutral colored walls of the library. To obtain such interesting and visually pleasing photographs, Kira uses a kaleidoscope lens attachment for her phone and ventures outside daily to snap hundreds of photos.
“I think I bring kind of an artistic eye to it,” she said. “I’ve studied art a lot, so I think I bring my experience to what I’m trying to achieve. I also became kind of a bulldog, and I go out every day trying to get better light and less wind.”
Kira revealed that for one particular photo, she went back to the same shrub every day at a different time to try to get the perfect shot.
