ApparatusCSULB Painting Professor Fran Siegel has a solo exhibition entitled Reconstruction at the ACME Gallery in Los Angeles. The show runs from September 17 through October 22, 2016. Prof. Siegel continues her investigations of place through the activity of drawing on a massive scale. Shifting perspectives generate a sense of motion and time, and multiple viewpoints are pieced together by combining a cyanotype photographic process with layered collage and drawing. Through these works, she explores the evolution of settlement, migration, and exodus within the borders of the Los Angeles metropolis, and how this constant shuffling creates geographical space. Congratulations Professor Siegel!
