Drawing with Wire
Zoë Siegel
Opening - Mujeres en el Arte, August 13

I draw with wire. It allows me to draw in both two and three dimensions. I use wire to draw a fluid line in space, and materialize a gesture. Often the gesture is a way of directing the gaze and focusing the energy.

I choose delicate materials. The paper I use is like a sensuous membrane. It functions in the sculpture as an ethereal skin, creating a translucent surface.

I seem to use the cup a lot. Or is it an egg? It reappears again and again in my work – an offering, a receiving, a container, and something empty. I use silver tape. It is there and not there, a presence that asserts and disappears at the same time. The tape plays with light, sparkling and reflecting its energy.

Wire, too, plays with light. It casts a shadow, and in doing so, manipulates the original form in surprising and dramatic ways. A shadow twin, born from the wire, creates yet another type of drawing.

The corset a binding, a clenching, a pinching, a strangling that requires immediate release. Made with fragile wire, embroidery thread and satin cord, it is held together with delicate strength.
