This unique wall hanging, made from found fabrics from the artist's studio and home, depicts the sillhouette of a serpent. Often misconstrued in contemporary Western culture as a phallic symbol, in most cultures, the serpent is an ancient symbol of female fertility, motherhood and regeneration. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, Siegler sites the quilt's 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.
