I have been living and working in Mexico City for many years. I believe that the close proximity of the pre-Hispanic art and archeological remains have greatly stimulated and enhanced my creative spirit.

I began carving wood early in the 1970's, and it became the medium in which I worked for over 20 years and which material comprised the bulk of my production. In all those years, I never had to cut down a tree to fill my sculpting needs. On the contrary, all my material came to me through what one would call serendipity; a tree was hit by lightening on a friend's ranch; the rejected supply of mahogany beams for the Franz Mayer Museum fulfilled my needs for over ten years; trunks rejected by a veneer-making company because they were irregularly shaped or split, etc.

Due to health problems, it was necessary to leave my passion for wood and seek my artistic expression elsewhere. I came upon an incredible treasure of sand-casting molds in wood - hundreds upon hundreds of "patterns" which eventually were assembled into sculptures and furniture. These molds were transformed into abstract forms together with another sculptor in a shared project which was exhibited in the Carrillo Gil Museum in Mexico City.

I work in bronze, steel, paper, acrylic, recycled materials and found objects. My imagery could be called abstracted realism and in some cases, hyper-realism.


 
Support for Conservation:
Concerned about global deforestation, and the potential disappearance of her beloved wood, Naomi Siegmann decided to do something about raising awareness of this controversial subject. The result is El Bosque/The Forest Project. Fifteen artists (including Siegmann) from both the United States and Mexico were invited to create trees out of any material EXCEPT wood. The purpose is to invite viewers to contemplate a world without trees. Many luminaries of the sculpture world heeded Naomi's call.
