Andrew Sendor

Born in 1977, Andrew Sendor currently lives and works in New York City. Sendor’s work is characterized by a meticulous draughtsmanship that serves to illuminate his ongoing engagement with the interrelation of photorealism and the evolution of the moving image. The artist’s film work further extends the intricate web of psychologically charged narratives, persona and anachronistic space developed in his drawings and paintings. He has presented solo gallery exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, and Copenhagen. Most recently, a solo exhibition of his work was presented at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University (2015-16). His works have been included in numerous museum exhibitions, including the Funen Art Museum, Odense, Denmark; Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY; Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, TN; Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO; and the ARKEN Museum of Art, Ishøj, Denmark. In 2014, Sendor mounted a solo exhibition in conjunction with his residency at The Wright Museum, Beloit College. His works are in private and public collections worldwide, including The Eli & Edythe Broad Art Museum, MSU, and The Morgan Library & Museum, New York.
