Janos Enyedi

“Janos Enyedi’s sculpture recaptures and reinvigorates the heroic traditions of American modernism. His keen sensitivity to the nation’s twentieth-century industrial spirit serves as the intellectual platform for his aesthetic essays in two and three dimensions. Enyedi’s painting and drawing, and especially his sculpture, take seriously America’s industrial past, less by documenting its former grandeur than by enabling its vestiges to take possession of our imagination. The visionary industrial landscapes of once muscular manufacturing, of vigorous inland transportation, and of imposing infrastructure are as much built on paradox as they are constructed from paper or in steel.”
