Aimée Siegel
The Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans

With a practice that began in sculpture and evolved into collage on canvas, Aimée Siegel sustains a sensitivity to depth and dimensionality, particularly to the viewer’s phenomenological relationship to the work. Seigel’s new work will be presented at The Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans in Hinge Picture, Memory Images, an exhibition that looks at the work of women artists who have used the tools and mined the histories of modernism for practices that move from the second to the third dimension. Her work will explore the movement from the flat plane to occupied space, through the layering of work on canvas, and the use of frames and stretchers as sculpture.
