BOCA RATON, Fla., May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TransMedia Group, which has represented world-class artists from LeRoy Neiman to India's legendary painter M.F. Hussain and arranged openings at such leading galleries as Pierre Cardin's Evolution in New York City, said it will publicize the works by one of Florida's rapidly emerging artists, Art Siegel.
A number of Siegel's works, which the artist dubs Kinetic Vistas® (www.kineticvistas.com) will be exhibited at the All Florida Juried Competition and Exhibition May 8 to July 14 at The Boca Raton Museum of Art.
TransMedia (www.transmediagroup.com) said it will focus publicity on Siegel's unique photojournalistic approach to art in media appearances and events, including showings of Siegel's works on television. Siegel's art will be on display in the Museum's central galleries along with the other works selected by this year's juror, Mark Scala, Chief Curator at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, TN, who chose 149 works by 122 Florida artists for this prestigious exhibition.
"Siegel's works combine photojournalism at which he is considered by collectors a master, accompanied by design and architectural nuances framed with materials and in sizes that fit environments they depict as well as places where they're exhibited," said TransMedia Group CEO Tom Madden, whose brother is cartoonist Donald Madden, whose cartoons have appeared in Playboy Magazine monthly for 50 years.
"Our publicity will show how all of Siegel's major pieces integrate two elements: photographs that present groups of people moving and interacting, usually in a big-city setting such as New York, Milan or Boston. He approaches these images as a photojournalist, capturing spontaneous scenes of active metropolitan life. We don't know the characters in these scenes, yet we sense the story that is being told by their expressions, body language and interactions," said Madden.
Siegel began his career in Public Television, creating scenery and lighting for dramatic productions. He was Production Manager on the Mr. Rogers program and today creates works under his trademark Kinetic Vistas name, the majority of them depicting active metropolitan life.
According to Madden, Siegel integrates physical architectural elements into the work, hand crafted from wood and metal, tile and plaster, and other materials to create a scenery-like realistic context for the photography. So a panoramic photograph inside a subway station contains simulated iron girders and textured platform surfaces.
