The Canopic Jars
by Devin Siglock
September 30 through November 12, 2023
The Canopic Jars were conceived as props for a short, avant-garde film, but grew beyond that project to become a separate body of work. Inspired by specimens in formaldehyde jars, these artworks combine visual beauty with a dash of repulsion. Bright colors clash with odd textures, creating lively objects that appear frozen in space and time.
Devin Siglock is a multimedia artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. As an undergraduate, he studied film at the University of California at Berkeley. He then completed a post-baccalaureate program in sculpture at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. Siglock loves to experiment with different materials and working methods. His artworks vary from detailed, photorealistic representations to completely non-objective inventions.
