If We Rose From Feathers
January 4 – January 29, 2013
Vintage Inspired Lifestyle Marketplace is pleased to announce an exhibition of mixed media work from Vermont artist Sienna Fontaine entitled If We Rose From Feathers, January 4th through the 29th. There will be an opening reception on First Friday, January 4th; from 5 to 8pm. Sienna Fontaine’s mixed media work features vibrant abstract washes, celebrating the fundamental properties of paint, merge with the bold marks of ink, pen, and stitched embroidery.
Sienna Fontaine’s recent work is concerned with ecology, an understanding of the past (both in a general sense and in a personal ancestral investigation), identity (both as a female and as an artist), words (poetry, prose, and perspective), and with process. Her methodology explores art as a means of creating and of finding home, where the creation of art is as much a shelter as a means of building structure as the final piece, whether it manifests through painting, photography, site specific installations, art-as-performance, oral story-telling, critical writing, or poetic reflection. Sienna is a Vermont artist and graduate from The University of Vermont with a degree in Art Education. Sienna received a Masters of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College.
