[New Orleans, LA ||| b. 1963 – New Orleans, LA]
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.
