About


Lendvai’s work does not reference any specific artist or art movement, but does reflect an admiration for the Constructivists, a kinship with Minimalists, and an understanding of, and an agreement with Suprematist Kazimir Malevich. With regard to Malevich, though Lendvai had not intensely studied his work, he realized he had an affinity for how the painted quadrilateral forms appeared to be floating in the middle of the canvas and addresses this in a three-dimensional form. When Malevich painted the black square, he was advocating an art of pure creation, which didn’t imitate visible reality. With this new installation, Lendvai aims to achieve the same spiritual enlightenment.

Through his work, Thomas Lendvai melds his knowledge of carpentry, taught to him by his father, and makes use of fundamental geometric forms to engage audiences through experiential installations that break down boundaries between the object and the subject, thus challenging the status quo in art, design, and architecture. His work encourages movement, allowing for audiences to experience a tactile engagement with space and oneself.

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 at ODETTA in 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.
