This series of new sculptures is made from the detritus of everyday life and influenced by some of Siegel’s obsessions: the Pacific Trash Vortex, transmutation, death and superheroes. The materials used range from taxidermy animal parts and plastic shopping bags, to retail jewelry exhibition cases and body bags.

Siegel has exhibited regionally and nationally, more recent exhibits of note include, In Advance of Falling light, a solo exhibit at 18 Rabbits Gallery, FL and Humanization at 38/39 Gallery. He earned his MFA at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and a BFA in photography from Syracuse University, NY.
