Welcome to my site.
Suzanne Siegel is an assemblage artist living in Los Angeles. She works with found images, creating feminist narratives. Her interest is in transforming everyday objects into poetic statements.
During her marriage my mother hopscotched the map
landing on one foot or sometimes two
with ten moves in two decades.
Plopped down like a frying pan into a pillow
she stepped across states collecting small
pleasures along with disappointment.
My mother tossed her marker on places she called
home--temperate or tropical—as she counted
reverses stitched in red embroidery thread.
In the end, the chalk outlines disappeared, so only
remnants of memories were left
like dropped stones, discarded on the sidewalk.
