From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Steven Siegel (born 1953) is an American artist whose work includes public artinstallation art, sculpture, collage and film.[1][2][3] He is most known for site-specific, outdoor sculptures, public art commissions and installations made from repurposed pre- and postconsumer materials, which have been influenced by concepts and processes derived from geology and evolutionary biology.[4][5] Writers relate his work in formal terms to minimalism, in its materials and emphasis on hands-on processes to postminimalism, and in its unconventional means (natural sites, community involvement, and embrace of ephemerality) to Land art.[6][7][8]

His studio work has been exhibited at Marlborough Fine Art,[9] Montalvo Arts Center,[7] Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art,[10] and the Drawing Center, among other venues.[11] He has created commissioned works in cities and universities throughout the U.S. and Europe, in Australia, and Kazakhstan and Korea, and at the DeCordova Museum,[12] Arte Sella Sculpture Park (Italy),[13] Grounds for Sculpture,[14] and Art Omi.[15] Siegel lives and works in Tivoli in upstate New York.
