Andreas Siegfried is delighted to announce his first collaboration with James Franco with an exhibition of Mr. Franco's new work at Siegfried Contemporary.
This much anticipated body of work will showcase new paintings by this multidiscplinary artist famous for his work as an actor, director and screenwriter.
"This is a bold and exciting project", says Mr. Siegfried, " I have chosen James Franco as I am personally interested in aspects of how he translates his life as a celebrity in to very quirky and thought provoking works of art. What draws me most to his paintings is their powerful presence and an ever present sense of humour. James will be showing a series of paintings at my house that all reflect on the theme of James public persona versus his own privacy. Basically his "true self" in conversation with his "false self". James interests are very wide ranhing and deal with the variety of emotions he encounters in his everyday life as an actor, set against recollection of his condensed childhood memories".
