James Siena

....
James Siena (Oceanside, California, 1957) trabaja entre medios explorando el rango de posibilidades que resulta de ejecutar procesos análogos con restricciones sistemáticas. Siena impone reglas-lo que llama algoritmos visuales-en su práctica, que producen abstracciones representadas concentrada y meticulosamente. Reconocido por sus pinturas de esmalte de colores brillantes sobre aluminio que ha producido desde principios de los 90, Siena se rehusa a restringirse a si mismo a un solo medio, produciendo grabados y litografías, al igual que dibujos en maquina de escribir y esculturas. Con residencia en Nueva York, Siena ha sido parte de más de 100 exposiciones desde 1981, incluyendo el Whitney Museum en 2004. Su trabajo se encuentra en las colecciones de The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Nueva York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Modern Art, Nueva York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; y el Whitney Museum of American Art, Nueva York, entre otros. Siena asistió al American Academy of Arts and Letters en el 2000 y fue elegido Académico de la National Academy en el 2011. Sus múltiples galardones incluyen el premio Eissner Artist of the Year del Consejo para las artes de Cornell en la Universidad de Cornell (2009); recibió su licenciatura en Bellas artes de Cornell en 1979. En 2004 completó el programa de residencias de Yaddo y más tarde fue elegido para su consejo directivo. Ha sido representado por la galería Pace desde 2004.

James Siena (b. 1957, Oceanside, California) works across media exploring the range of possibilities that result when handmade or analog processes are executed with systematic constraints. Siena imposes rules—what he calls visual algorithms—on his practice, which produce concentrated and meticulously rendered abstractions. Celebrated for the brightly colored enamel on aluminum paintings he has produced since the early 1990s, Siena refuses to constrain himself to one medium, producing engravings, etchings, lithographs, woodcuts, as well as drawings executed on typewriters and sculptures. Based in New York, Siena has been featured in more than one hundred solo and group exhibitions since 1981, including the 2004 Whitney Biennial. His work is included in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others. Siena was inducted to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2000 and was elected an Academician at The National Academy in 2011. His many accolades also include the Eissner Artist of the Year Award from the Cornell Council for the Arts at Cornell University Award (2009); he received his BFA from Cornell in 1979. In 2004 he completed an artist-in-residency program at Yaddo and was later elected to its board of directors. He has been represented by Pace Gallery since 2004.
