Gastronomy & Art Collide: Artist Adam Siegel
Chicago artist Adam Siegel is a highly respected creative force within the art industry. He hails from Chicago and his latest projects are bound to keep his name buzzing within art and culinary circles. The first project we’ll touch on is his new artistic series titled The Progression with The Alinea group. The aforementioned Alinea group is made up of celebrity chef, Grant Achatz and his business partner Nick Kokonas. They asked themselves the simple question: How would they integrate Siegel’s visual art into a dining experience in a meaningful way? The result was a series of creative vignettes, paintings and even photographs that truly highlight the width and breadth of Spiegel’s artistic ability. The works consist of 5 collage/paintings and 12 photographs on canvas, along with two large-scale temporary installations. See the art below and just imagine yourself eating a 5-star meal surrounded by this amazing art.
Siegel also collaborated with the Alinea Group by creating an awe-inspiring painting called “Boars Head” for their new restaurant, Roister. The painting measures 8’1″ long and 5’4″ wide, and it is placed on the new restaurant’s featured wall. It is a mixed medium work using optical capture technology, collage and paint. The piece is inspired by a boar’s head image derived from a 19th century French cookbook. Siegel’s painting shows the Boar’s Head floating in deep space with other images fragmented around it—articles of clothing, animals, floral and fauna.
