James Siena (b. 1957) is a New York based artist whose complex, rule-based linear abstractions have situated him firmly within the trajectory of modern American art. His artwork is driven by self-imposed predetermined sets of rules, or “visual algorithms,” which find their end-result in intensely concentrated, vibrantly-colored, freehand geometric patterns. Siena is also a teacher and lecturer who’s graced the School of Visual Arts, Pratt, Cooper Union, MoMa, and several other institutions. His works exists in the Whitney Museum, Museum of Mondern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Yale University Art Gallery among many others.
James Siena is featured in the Spaced Out: Migration to the Interior exhibit curated by Phong Bui.
