Born in Nashville, Tennessee in 1959, Joseph Seigenthaler currently resides in Chicago, Illinois, where he has exhibited his figurative sculpture for the past 20 years. He is married to the painter Anne Gilbert from Paris, France and they have three beautiful daughters, ages 15, 12, and 9 years old. The artist is represented by Carl Hammer Gallery, Chicago.
Having received the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1981 from the Memphis College of Art’s painting department, he soon began fabricating on a freelance basis life-size, realistic wax figures for various wax museums, primarily in Nashville and Tamworth, Australia. The technical processes gained from this three year period were to become influential on the development of his later explorations with large, over life-sized figures.
