“I began to access corners of my imagination that were previously lying dormant” – an interview with Andrew Sendor

Andrew Sendor (1977, U.S.A.) is the type of artist who revels in the use of different and differing media, mixing the visual effects in such a way that the viewer must decipher not only the subject of the work, but also the technique. All of Sendor’s works give the impression that they have been taken out of context, appearing as the imprint of a moment from the artist’s narrative. It is up to the viewer to then build up the story around these presented moments.
