Elisa Lendvay investigates the interplay between sculpture, painting and drawing. She employs color, form and diverse materials which merge into enigmatic objects bound by physicality. Exploring ideas of internal vision, observation of nature and corporeality, her work is illuminated by moments of play, discovery and truth. 

I’ve always been drawn to looping forms

 like limbs 

conveying a path or infinity

infinitely bending, bolting, staying alive, or frozen in motion

space around and inside taking us protecting us cores or cages, nets and webs, ladders stacking strata, a tracking of time….
