① Artwork:

Tanagra

This nine-color lithograph print is part of an edition of 33 made on Arches Cover paper. For this mesmerizingly intricate work, the artist expands upon his "visual algorithms"—rules and constraints that he invents and follows through in each of his works. In this composition, Siena's lines and mark-making evoke an aerial view of the undulating coast line of the city Tanagra in Greece.

Siena's work draws inspiration from artificial intelligence, investigating the imaginary space of programmers' source code through paint. The artist says of his process: "I don't make marks, I make moves. The reality of abstraction is my primary point of engagement. When I make a painting, I respond to a set of parameters—like a visual algorithm."

James Siena

Siena's abstract paintings draw inspiration from artificial intelligence and investigate the imaginary space of programmers' source code. Siena's compositions may seem like decorative puzzles or labyrinths, but there is a logic base in each work—a set of parameters, like a visual algorithm, that the artist follows.
