Born in 1957 in Oceanside (California, US), James Siena lives and works in New York.

James Siena is a seminal artist on the New York art scene. His work, by turns lithographs, engravings, drawings and paintings, involves complex geometrical abstractions established on the basis of a set of rules or “visual algorithms”. The mathematical rigour of the process does not, however, exclude the presence of the artist’s hand and the fragility of a gesture which is constantly repeated.

 Siena’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Miles McEnnery Gallery, New York (2022) ; Baronian Xippas Brussels, Belgium (2021); Dieu Donné, New York, NY(2014); Galerie Xippas, Paris, France(2019, 2014); Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY (2015); Pace Gallery, New York, NY (2019, 2017, 2015, etc); Pierogi, Brooklyn (2014), NY; The Print Center, Philadelphia, PA; and the University Art Museum, University of Albany, New York, NY(2007); among others.

His work is in numerous institutional collections including the Hammer Museum, University of California, Los Angeles, CA; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY.
