Joel Seiden, like most contemporary sculptors, traces his primary influences to the works of David Smith and Julio Gonzales in welded steel, and to Constantin Brancusi and Isamo Noguchi in Stone Carving. But Seiden works are reverential without being referential. Unlike those giants, Seiden often introduces metaphorical inferences into his stylized sculptures, expressing ideas about which he feels strongly. These passionately crafted works explore injustices in politics , indifference in medicine and man's inhumanity to man. Seiden's oil paintings are equally personal, if less intense. Vivid with Fauvist color and Expressionist imagery, his paintings range from enigmatic landscapes to poignant portraits. Influences aside, Seiden's art remains authentically and unmistakably his own.
