Kathran Siegel

“I like to mix vocabularies, searching for the syntax that will allow the languages of two and three dimensions to coexist [and] synthesize in my work.” 

Though trained as a painter, Kathran Siegel began creating sculptural work early in her artistic career. Using power tools and large industrial machinery, she carves organic forms out of wood, and uses her exacto-knife for precision. This manual approach slows down production and gives Siegel time to reflect and revise. She states that “it is this process that keeps [her] coming back to the work.” Siegel’s manipulation of materials creates two dimensional works that exude a painterly quality with their organic, freeform shapes. Adding paint to highlight specific areas creates even more visual interest. The evidence of the artists’ hand is present in her artwork making the objects feel like unique hybrid’s which exist as both paintings and sculptures.
