1983 Colonnade

Colonnade

Colonnade and Reeded, both introduced in 1983, reveal Mignon’s lifelong fascination with New Orleans’s historic architecture and the way in which it defines space. As with objects from nature, Faget disassociates individual details from the whole in a process of deconstruction, stylization, and re-interpretation of elements. Colonnade features simplified elements of Ionic and Corinthian capitals.  She asserts that working with architect David Waggoner through the years “sparked an awareness of the reductive character of architecture and its use of stylized nature.”
