About Wendy Meg Siegel
Wendy Meg Siegel is a mixed media artist who finds inspiration in our collective history and ancient wisdom. Her intention is to create works of art that become visual reminders of our ability to cultivate the peace and love that already reside within each of us. Her hope is for the viewer to recognize a place within themselves that connects to something beyond the physical world.
Although Wendy has always found ways to express her creativity, she has had a continuous love affair with painting.
In the early 1990’s, Wendy explored new freedoms of expression, experimenting with a wide variety of materials, and began making cuts in the canvas surface. Openings, or windows, were created within the paintings. These cutouts gave way to the use of multiple canvas layers, adding a multi-dimensional effect. For over ten years, Wendy’s photographs were recessed within the works as the focal point.
Now, raw canvas has become the primary element in her paintings — cut and prepared with strings, fringes, and frayed edges. Her recent works combine the sacredness of books with the Divine connection that people, cultures, and religions have strived for throughout history. The text of ancient prayers, mantras, and words of wisdom often find their way into Wendy’s canvases, utilizing ancient languages.
Wendy is a native New Yorker, who relocated to California in 1994.
There is always a new creative venture to explore.
