Lisa Sigal's work lies at the intersection of painting, sculpture and architecture. Her constructions insinuate themselves into the fabric of the built environment. Sigal's work frames a view, which often blurs the distinction between what is found and what is made and ultimately what is real. The core of her work questions the formal and philosophical stability of structure.
Lisa Sigal was born in Philadelphia, PA. She received a Creative Capital Grant in 2012, a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2011, a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant and the Elizabeth Foundation Grant in 1998. Her work was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and has been exhibited at the The New Museum, PS1, SculptureCenter, Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Albright-Knox and the Brooklyn Museum. She received a BFA from the Tyler School of Art in 1985 and an MFA from the Yale School of Art in 1989. Sigal lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
