Born in 1977, Andrew Sendor currently lives and works in New York City. Sendor’s work is characterized by a meticulous draftsmanship that serves to illuminate his ongoing engagement with the interrelation of photorealism and invented narrative structures. The artist introduces us to a group of fictional characters in a storyline whose genesis derives from a unique creative process: Sendor scripted, produced, directed, and documented a series of performances recounting the life and times of his eccentric cast. These performances ultimately become the basis for Sendor’s paintings, drawings, and films.
He has presented solo gallery exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, and Copenhagen. A solo exhibition of his work was presented at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University (2015-16). Most recently, his work has been the subject of the two-person exhibition “Micro-Macro: Andrew Sendor and Ali Banisadr” at MOCA Jacksonville (2019). 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.
