Gene Kiegel (b.1974, Ukraine) is a New York based interdisciplinary artist with a degree in Environmental Design from UC Berkeley. His work resembles a collection of extracts from another universe, comprised of biological and geological formations in sculptural format.
Gene Kiegel’s art pays tribute to the beauty found in basal organic reactions. It embodies two core truths: that all matter is molded by the same universal forces, and that there is a primal beauty - an “essence” - to be discovered in the biogeochemical interactions between elements, specific to the material properties of each reactant. All artwork is purposely le untitled to foster a variety of interpretations driven by the viewer’s personal associations, unhindered by the artist’s own.
