Danielle Siegelbaum
Croton on Husdon, New York

Danielle Siegelbaum categorizes her work with her own term, “Primitive Occidental Art.” Her paintings are an amalgamation of imagery from different sources, cultures, and styles, rendered in a primitive childlike fashion. The heavy black lines, flat graphic style, and stick figures look like something drawn with a digital paintbrush. This contemporary visual reference is combined with something unorthodox, such the image of a traditional African mask, or images from fashion magazines. The colors are primary and bold, providing a Pop Art, Lichtenstein-esque quality to the paintings. There is also an “art brut” or outsider style to the work, and the lack of perspective and overlapping of objects is reminiscent of the French painter Jean Dubuffet. Danielle has a background in both textile design and publishing, and it is clear that she draws on both of these commercial mediums for inspiration. Although the work is about combining disparate ideas and imagery, there is a strong sense of unity and a stylistic tie that flows through her art. As Danielle describes it, “my work is about being very direct, fluid, spontaneous, and unapologetically emotional.”

Comments About This Piece

This piece is about shadows, the balance of forms and colors, and mixing modernity with a classic style. A parallel with the life and arithmetic. Sometimes it's positive, sometimes negative, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, you multiply you divide... 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang. 

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.
