Aimée Farnet Siegel
"Blue Menorah" - abstract paper collage - horizontal

2022

About the Item

"Blue Menorah" is an artist painted & found paper long horizontal collage featuring hues of blue, brown and white. The frame dimensions are 15 by 45 inches. Aimée Farnet Siegel is inspired by the work of Mark Bradford, Richard Diebenkorn and Leonardo Drew. Aimée Farnet Siegel is a native New Orleanian who received her BFA from Louisiana State University. Connections and the space between are the primary themes in her work. She explores the tension that is created when objects are close, but do not touch. In her work, lines are like characters in a play, weaving through the story. Using paper as her medium, she strives to be sensitive to its authenticity, allowing the paper to become what it wants to be. Aimée is currently working on a site specific installation for The Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans for a group exhibition “Hinge Picture, Memory Images,” opening February 2019. Alongside working in her studio in New Orleans, Aimee teaches a class she created in abstract collage at The New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts.

  • Stanley Boxer Mixed Media Abstract Expressionist Painting on Paper, Gold
    By Stanley Boxer
    Located in Surfside, FL
    Abstract, 1987 Hand signed and dated verso Not sure of technique. this might be a monotype or monoprint with hand painting. The handmade paper is cut somewhat irregularly as per the artists intentions. Stanley Boxer (1926-May 8, 2000) was an American abstract expressionist artist best known for thickly painted abstract works of art. He was also an accomplished sculptor and printmaker. He received awards from the Guggenheim Fellowship and the National Endowment for the Arts. Boxer was born in New York City, and began his formal education after World War II, when he left the Navy and studied at the Art Students League of New York. He drew, painted, made prints, and sculpted. His work was recognized by art critic Clement Greenberg, who categorized him as a color field painter, A group that included Barnett Newman, Clyfford Still, and Mark Rothko and was a form of Abstract Expressionism and later included Helen Frankenthaler, Ad Reinhardt, Kenneth Noland, Gene Davis, Jules Olitski, Raymond Parker and Morris Louis. Boxer himself was adamant in rejecting this stylistic label. Over the years, he remained loyal to the materially dense abstract mode on which his reputation rested.. Art critic Grace Glueck wrote "Never part of a movement or trend, though obviously steeped in the language of Modernism, the abstract painter Stanley Boxer was a superb manipulator of surfaces, intensely bonding texture and color." In 1953 Boxer had his first solo exhibition of paintings in New York City, and showed regularly thereafter until his death. His paintings and sculpture were represented in New York City during the late 1960s through 1974 by the Tibor de Nagy Gallery, then by the André Emmerich Gallery from 1975 until 1993, and finally by Salander-O'Reilly Galleries until its demise in 2007.

  • "No Turning Back" Diptych Acrylic and Collage on Wood Panel
    By Trevor Norris
    Located in West Hollywood, CA
    Trevor Norris was born into a large family living in a small but brightly painted english row house. Life inside was turbulent and colorful. Norris's art is a personal reflection using his written stories as a catalyst to spark each work. The text holds the meaning and yet he covers it with many layers of bright paint making it illegible to the viewer. as each work develops it becomes more about the paint and less about the words. Trevor Norris tells his story, through layers of shapes and paint, reworking his literary narrative, finding order in disorder, and meaning in what is not said. "No Turning Back" Diptych...
