James Siena



James Siena's paintings squeeze an unexpected amount of information into tight spaces. The Basque, Catalan, and Castilian songs on his playlist compress a startling range of sentiments from the Iberian peninsula into a short half hour.

Siena is an American contemporary artist based in New York City. His art is typically created through a series of self-imposed constraints also sometimes referred to as visual algorithms —rules Siena decides on before sitting down to work.
