People, Places and Things
In this presentation, artwork by Joseph Siegel is described by the title above. What it means is that part of his work stems from the way the artist has created an idea and a backstory. The second part of the title relates more to his abstract work which can be interpreted by the viewers who use their imagination.
When Robert Rauschenberg experimented with innovative techniques in collage he was creating new ground in art. Similarly, Joe uses a technique of photo collage as the basis for his painting: oil, encaustic, pastel and, in some cases, Photoshop to create his final image.
