About

Brooklyn-based artist Thomas Lendvai transforms everyday construction materials into large-scale, site-responsive, sculptural experiences that celebrate the intrinsic and elemental value inherent within the materials and explore the notion of self. Through his work, Lendvai melds his knowledge of carpentry, taught to him by his father at an early age, with his interest in modernist and post-modernist theory of sculpture and philosophical and scientific definitions of time and space.

Lendvai’s site-responsive installations make use of fundamental geometric forms to address concepts of space and time, and to engage audiences through experiential installations that break down the boundary between the art object and the subject and question the notions art, design, and architecture. His work encourages movement and a continuous awareness of a series of nows, allowing for audiences to experience a more tactile engagement with space and self.

Lendvai’s sculptures and site-responsive installations have been exhibited in Tokyo, Japan; Chicago, Illinois; Key West, Florida; and more recently in Hoboken, New Jersey; and Brooklyn, New York. He received his BA at SUNY Stony Brook and his MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2002. Lendvai is of Hungarian descent and is a first generation American.
