This unique drawing echos visual patterns usually found in textiles and quilt-making. The work is precise, and the composition has a clear and harmonious structure. Working in fabric in her quilted works, this drawing continues Siegler's interest in traditional quilting techniques and colonial American textiles. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, Siegler cites the quilts of Gee's Bend, Amish quilting, traditional Korean Pojagi, Japanese Sahiko, Indian hand quilting, and Bauhaus textiles and weavings as inspiration for her work.
Cory Siegler (b.1986, New York) is a New York based artist, musician and curator.
