Francine Spiegel is an LA-based artist who's works include photocollage, video, mixed media assemblages and freeform installations. All of her work is derived from samplings of funky feminine cyber-subcultures, techno debris from her studio floor and other random raw materials.
Spiegel’s loose, sprawling technique captures the Dionysian abandon of the fantasies on display, which are woven into shiny, brash webs with fetishistic textures. The pieces are rumpled and limp like debauched frocks or skins shed from identity crises, but the nonjudgmental viewpoint and equality given to all, from neo-hippie chick to chocolate bather, shape a twenty-first century vision of gathering and community.
Spiegel's first New York solo show will be at Silo from 12 March to 17 April.
