Wendy Letven | Meta Morphologies
Presented by the Artist and NL=US
Location: Entrance Tent
In her installation Meta Morphologies, artist Wendy Letven juxtaposes contrasting linear languages and patterns in an intricate suspended paper cut installation. She explores the materiality of paper in black and white to blur the lines between two and three-dimensional space, between drawing and sculpture. Letven is interested in providing the viewer with an open-ended decoding experience when engaging with the work by fusing together a large taxonomy of cultural symbols and ambiguous shapes, that feel both geometric and organic at the same time.
Wendy Letven is represented by NL=US, a private gallery and art consulting service based in both The Netherlands and New York. She is currently exhibiting a site-specific public sculpture at NYC’s historic and iconic Flatiron Building, in The Flatiron Prow Artspace at 175 Fifth Avenue. This Spring Wendy will exhibit her work at The Hunterdon Art Museum in an exhibit of works on paper entitled "Transformed: Paper in Dimension”. Letven teaches at The New School and at NYU and has been an artist in residence at The McDowell Colony in New Hampshire, at Dieu Donne’ in New York, and at Gallery Aferro in Newark .
