Alissa Siegal is a figurative oil painter living and working in Stamford Connecticut. Her work is about light, color, and the energy in objects and spaces. She uses detailed drawing and gestural paint application to explore representation, chaos, and order. Her paintings are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and in Europe, including at Stamford Hospital, Yale New Haven Hospital’s Park Avenue Medical Center, and Sacred Heart University. She earned her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, including a year spent studying in Rome, and an MFA in painting from the Graduate School of Figurative Art at the New York Academy of Art, where she also trained in Forensic Sculpture. She has exhibited her art across the country and in Europe, taught art to children and adults for many years, executed numerous commissioned portraits and murals, and been featured in television specials on her art. You can see her painted signal boxes around Stamford, and her paintings on set in the Gerard Butler/Jennifer Aniston movie “The Bounty Hunter”, and “Something Borrowed” with Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin. She is a teaching artist with the Aldrich Museum of Art, where she helps visitors to the museum’s art studio reflect on what they have seen, experiment, realize their visions, and feel more connected to art. As a volunteer she created and taught an art program for the middle schoolers at Trailblazers Academy, designed to allow students to independently explore and create, and they then presented their work to the public with an exhibit in the heart of the city. This past fall she was artist in residence at Weir Farm National Park, and in 2018 was New Canaan Library's second artist in residence. Her most recent project is a roughly 85 foot mural at Stamford Hospital's Bennet Cancer Center. It shows local flowers with healing properties and a cherry tree in bloom. She spent several years in Italy painting and traveling, opened a gallery with artist friends on NYC’s lower East Side, and another on St. John, USVI. She is a member of the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County. See her work at alissasiegal.com, realart.work and on instagram.
