As an artist, Ahti Seppet is - as strange as it may seem - very social. This is caused by the time and the place he is living in. Living in a splintered world inevitably produces splintered art. It may be said that Seppet uses mixed techniques, that he uses too many different materials (plaster, bronze, wood, stone, paper) and tries to cover too many different themes. But, the lives of all of us that have survived have only been a store of broken pieces of a mirror. We were born into the ruins and there we started to look for things to build a new world for ourselves. There is nothing condemnable in that. The material will always be only the material. The artist turns it to art.
