Recently discovered negatives from her father, Mitchell Siporin’s trip to Mexico in 1939 provided the inspiration for the paintings and intaglio prints in Murals in the Marketplace.

 The photographs follow a pilgrimage of Depression-era Federal Arts Project muralists, contemporary Mexican artists, and their companions, as they pay tribute to the great 1920’s Mexican murals that inspired and informed their WPA murals.

 

Rachel Siporin describes: “My process begins with sketchbook ink drawings and multiple state etchings and aquatints. As I juxtapose figures, architecture, and landscape, the narrative emerges. Bystanders, incidental tiny actors in the distance, discovered through enlarging the photographs’ sections, shape the narrative.”  The paintings on panel in “Murals in the Marketplace” are executed in Flashe. Siporin is attracted by the quality and range of color of Flashe.  The choice of the colored ground in each painting is essential, as it provides the foundation for the color choices in the individual works.
