Since my last exhibition, I intensified my focus in the studio, developing distinctively refined techniques for a compelling new body of work: From the Wabi Sabi Series, Portraits in Evolution. Wabi-Sabi is a traditional Japanese concept of beauty passed down through generations. It is a vision of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.  It is modest and humble. It is the allure of all things unconventional. Below is a glimpse into my journey in achieving Wabi-Sabi:

Last month I stole away to Italy with my family to experience le dolce vita and collected inspiration for my new works.



Adam Siegel: Works on Words

Spertus Museum, Chicago
September 11, 1997 thru January 4, 1998

The Works on Words series, featured in my one man show at the Spertus Museum, is continually evolving in the privacy of the studio.


I've had the great honor to collaborate with so many talented individuals in the culinary and design worlds.  Congratulations to Roister on being featured in this past month's issue of Hospitality Design and in Chicago Magazine! It was an absolute pleasure to work with the team at 555 International on the installation of the Boar's Head piece. I'm flattered to have one of my works in this amazing restaurant and for 555 to feature it on their homepage.
