Daedalus, 2019

Moving between the worlds of art, design, and craft, Cory Siegler’s work explores the many dimensions of functionality, tactility, and pattern. Her work spans a variety of media including patchwork quilting, drawing, bookmaking, and printmaking. This risograph print expands on Siegler’s self-published Daedulus zine (2020), a collection of geometric drawings loosely inspired by the Minoan palace of Knossos built by the architect Daedalus in Greek mythology. For her zine, Siegler imagined the fabled architectural elements and structures Daedalus may have built in bold, interlocking patterns. Repeating and manipulating one of her labyrinth drawings, Siegler’s print of dashes and dots is an entirely new image which can be oriented in either direction.

Printmaker and textile artist Cory Siegler (b. 1986) is best known for her large Modular Quilt Sets, a series of quilts made to be both showcased in a gallery or worn on the body. Her blended use of earth tone and tribal pattern also brings to mind a retro aesthetic, ultimately fostering a contemporary and unique design. She now lives and works in Brooklyn.
