The Siglio blog has a new home! New post on artist Charlotte Salomon.
Life? Or Theater? An abbreviated Charlotte Salomon biography is now up. This post illuminates the extraordinary and far too short life of one of the artists featured in It Is Almost That: A Collection of Image+Text Work by Women Artists & Writers. Salomon created an epic work in gouache with text overlays (mutating into text painted directly with image) that traversed three generations of her family’s history, told from multiple perspectives, unfolding during the decline of the Weimar Republic and the Nazi’s rise to power.
