( 22nd June At Hanbury Gardens, Ventimiglia – Italy)
Andrew Lendzion is an artist working from studios in the United Kingdom and France. He trained at St Martins School of Art, London, and is a contemporary sculptor. In recent years Lendzion has worked with museums, which include the British and Ashmolean.
In his “Larger-than-life” exhibition, Hellenistic mythologies embrace the heroes of the present in a timeless union.
Monumental sculptures take the spectator on a magical journey into the past, through works of legendary charm, but with marble veins that appear to flow with a superhero’s blood, made of pixels and modern ink.
A pre-functional concern of polytheistic belief defined a statue as an idol, and in the modern era idolatry is discernible in the common psyche. In reinstating mythic and idolatry imagery to the statuary, the series seeks to emphasise a vital and primal root within contemporary culture.
The show starts on the 22nd June At Hanbury Gardens, Ventimiglia (Italy)
