Paul Sietsema is an artist deeply engaged in the act of looking. For his third and newest project, Figure 3 (2008), Sietsema takes as inspiration the ethnographic objects that he has collected from various locations, including Africa, Indo-Asia, and the South Pacific region of Oceania. Situating Figure 3 in the broader context of Sietsema's work of the past ten years, this far-ranging volume explores the artist's unique approach to looking as well as the relationships among his drawings, object-making, and film. The publication includes an essay by Cornelia Butler and an interview with the artist by Bruce Hainley.
