Maggie Siner: The Language of Painting
This is Maggie Siner's first exhibition at Calloway Fine Art and features a full range of her subjects and themes. Sumptuous table settings mingle amongst serene scenes of Venice, succulent fruits, whimsical tableaus, and vibrant French landscapes. The selected works are drawn from Siner's newest body of work, produced both in Venice and the South of France, where she spends much of her year.
A quiet voice in contemporary art, Siner’s paintings are held in special esteem for their enduring qualities: a perfect sense of fleeting time, exquisite clarity of light, bold brushwork, fine tuning of color, delicately balanced structure, and the captured moment of absolute recognition. Her subject matter ranges from the intimate to the monumental, from the everyday to whimsical combinations of objects, with surprise, intelligence and a sensual mastery of traditional media.
Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Siner began her studies at the Art Students League of New York in 1968, graduated from Boston University (BFA) in 1973 and from American University (MFA) in 1976 where she studied under Robert D'Arista. She has lived for extended periods in France, Italy and China. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums for four decades and is in hundreds of collections around the world.
