Wendy Letven explores contrasting visual languages in her vibrantly colored paintings and sculptural works. She is interested in the illusory potential of art to challenge perceptions of two and three dimensional space and in blurring the lines between natural and human-made typologies of form. Layered patterns, shapes and calligraphic lines are interwoven in her work to form fluid assemblages that explore larger metaphysical themes.
Wendy Letven has exhibited her work in museums and galleries in the New York area including The Bronx Museum, Aljira Gallery, Momenta Art, Mayson Gallery and other places. Wendy holds a BFA from Tyler School of Art and an MFA from Hunter College and is a faculty member at Parsons School of Design in New York. She has been an artist in residence at Dieu Donne in New York, Gallery Aferro in Newark and The McDowell Colony in New Hampshire.
