Sejkko Eri is known for his ‘Lonely Houses’ — digitally altered photographs that embody very raw ideas and sensations about ‘hope for the future’ retained from childhood, and how they are transmuted into the ownership of personal evolution. This transmutation endures overwhelming loneliness, a complete disconnection from identity, and the intense gravitational force to fit in social groups where the main character kept feeling diluted and lost all meaning.
Visually, the houses often exist by themselves, often with some vibrantly coloured elements — reminiscent of the Tropical Venezuela where Sejkko grew up. The typical backdrops for the lonely houses are ethereal, crystalline, pastel blue skies. Sejkko currently lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal.
