Former Faculty

Elisa Lendvay’s explorations in making form, color and enigmatic objects move between sculpture, painting and drawing. They present interplays among internal vision, observation of nature, and corporality to generate moments of perception, truth, and whimsey. Diverse materials are employed to consider how unlike elements can merge into something other and new. She explores the physicality of making and matter with a sense of play and discovery in the process.
