    This Week’s Pick from Artist’s Artists: From the Collection of James Siena

    Bruce Conner

    #211 FUNNY MONEY & #212 MONEY HONEY, 1970-71

    Offset Lithograph mounted on board. Edition (both): 85

    It is no surprise that James Siena was drawn to this work by Bruce Conner. Both pieces exhibit an almost microscopic amount of detail in the line work, which Siena is very drawn to in his own practice. Both artists use line to created varying depths and textures in otherwise two-dimensional works. We see this masterful use of line in one of Siena’s works Pharynx Detata, pictured below.

    A first look at our Artist’s Artists exhibition, currently on view through October 15, 2014. Artist’s Artists is an exhibition of a selection of prints from the personal collections of artists James Siena, Josh Smith, and Charline von Heyl. These eclectic collections range from works by Rauschenberg and Wool, to 17th century Japanese woodcuts, and even to a group of vintage Typewriters. Artist’s Artists provides insight into the artistic preferences and inspirations of these three prolific printmakers.

Selected solo exhibitions include:Nicholas Metivier gallery, Toronto (2012/2010); Jill George Gallery, London (2008/05/02/99/97);Long & Ryle, London (1995/92/89). Selected group exhibitions:‘The Art of Drawing British Masters and methods since 1600, V&A Museum, London; Galerie Ulrike Behrends, Germany (2006); RA Summer Exhibition, London (2004); Discerning Eye, Mall Galleries, (1998/97/90).

She lives and works in Coventry, UK. Nationality: British. She is represented by the Jill George Gallery, London; the Nicholas Metivier Gallery, Toronto; and Pratt Contemporary Art, Kent.
Her work is figurative and consists of large charcoal drawings, monotypes and colograph/etchings.  ”The monotype process suits my way of working as it is the ‘painterly’ version of what I do with charcoal on paper. The accidental elements, which are also present in my drawing process, can be both intriguing and frustrating. The small size of the monotype plates provides an intensity that isn’t available with my large scale drawings.”
