Artist Statement

Repetitive images and grids are the foundation of my work.  The image, which is a circle or oval, is repeated to represent development.  The grid represents the barriers and obstacles of contemporary life.  I work primarily on paper because I love the spontaneity of drawing and am very interested in the surface and edges of paper.  I am fascinated by the creative process as one mark leads to the next mark and one drawing develops into the next drawing.  I always want to be free to see where the creative process will take me.  I am often fascinated and surprised by what develops.

 

My most recent body of work is very labor intensive and meditative.  The finished drawings look very serene because of the small fluctuations in shadow but on closer viewing an obsessive quality becomes apparent.  Upon reflection, I have been exploring the seeming contradiction between obsession and meditation.

 

Artist Bio / CV

    Joyce Siegel is a working artist with a studio in Long Island City.  She recently had a solo show at the Shag Gallery in Chelsea, NY.  She also has work at the Pierogi gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

 While living in London, Joyce became fascinated with paintings, sculpture and especially drawings.  She scoured the galleries and museums in London and New York.  Joyce is primarily a self taught artist and much of what she has learned has come from her interaction and observation of great art.  She developed her techniques by taking several art classes at the Arts Students League, The New York Studio School, The School of Visual Arts and Anderson Ranch. She has also worked with Jerry Salz, Suzanne Joelson, and more recently with Shazia Sikander and Joan Snyder.  Joyce was invited and resided at the artist colony Yaddo, the summer of 2006.   

Joyce primarily works with water based products on paper.  She is very intrigued by the surface and edges of paper.  Joyce has always been fascinated by the creative process; one mark leading to the next mark,  as well as one drawing developing into the next drawing.   

 Besides producing her own work, Joyce has also worked with children from The Dalton School, P.S. 6 and the 92nd Street Y Nursery School creating large scale grid drawings.  The drawings incorporate sentences, letters, marks and words generated by the children. The entire student body is involved in the drawings which have raised significant funds for these institutions.    

Joyce Siegel was born in New York City where she currently resides.  She received a B.S. in Economics in 1982 from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and worked on Wall Street for 10 years,
