About

Non-objective artist AIMÉE FARNET SIEGEL works with color and line through the medium of found, hand-painted, and manipulated paper. Her works inhabit space outside the two-dimensional plane of paint on canvas and have a depth beyond collage and are closer in nature to assemblage. Inspired by typography with a deep-rooted connection to the grid, Siegel’s graphic design background is evident in her work. In 2019 she presented an independent site-specific installation in conversation with works in the international group show Hinge Picture: Eight Women Artists Occupy the Third Dimension at the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans. Concurrently, Siegel exhibited in a solo show at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery, New Orleans. And in a group show at Spalding Nix Fine Art, Atlanta. Born in New Orleans in 1963, Siegel received her BFA from Louisiana State University and later studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. The artist says of her work... My work explores connections whether it’s visually through linework or literally, as in my series titled, Aimée and The Post Office. In 2018, I mailed small unfinished works to close friends, collectors, and Instagram followers. Each was mailed with no protective envelopes, inviting scratches, rips and ink marks from my unwitting partner, the US Post Office. Having gone through the postal system, I felt the works were now finished. These surprise gifts were my way of connecting. I push scale differences within bodies of work. And as I work, I enjoy shifting between very small and very large pieces, as I find each informs the other. However, living this new Covid normal, where I’m cut off from family and friends and my studio is now on my front porch, I feel the need to work small. Rather than connecting, I’m realizing my need to be insular. My works have become cocoon-like. And each feels like a puzzle I’m trying to solve.
