James Siena

Here is someone that has struck my interest. I like this work. The drawings are just wonderful in details. I like his quote about his work, 'I don’t make marks. I make moves.' I ran acroos his work looking at David Krut Projects. James Siena has more work at Artnet. He is very Modernist in that he tends to keep his work flat and he fills the surface with more controled gestures. I have seen him labeled as an AbEx artist, but he came on the art scene in the 1980's, so I would say he is more of an American Neo-AbEx'er.
