Event Description

The School of Art presents:

James Siena, Painter

May 30 at 6 p.m. in Room 202, Art Building
Free and open to the public

Kent/Blossom Art presents a free guest lecture from one of the “most famous living abstract artists,” painter James Siena as part of the Kent Blossom Art 2013 Public Lecture Series.

James Siena’s work features rule-based linear abstractions, which create “linear algorithms” expressed through brightly colored geometric designs. "They're procedures," Siena says of the rules governing his paintings. "Each painting has to do with carrying out a procedure, no matter how simple. It's the task of making it physical." In addition to painting, Siena also engages in lithography, etching, woodcut, engraving and drawing.

His work can be seen in collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Siena earned his bachelor of fine arts degree from Cornell University.

The Public Lecture Series gives the general public an opportunity to hear from the top artists in the fields of painting, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics. The Kent Blossom Art program also includes two-week intensive workshops in these areas of study, available at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
