Patterns of Thought: Artwork by Wendy Letven

Winter Garden Gallery at Brookfield Place

Commissioned by Arts Brookfield for Brookfield Place

The first exhibition of 2022 in the Winter Garden Gallery will be Patterns of Thought, a new series of three-dimensional wall sculptures by visual artist, Wendy Letven.

Each of the five colorful sculptures in the exhibition are a visual representation of a different function or varying state of the human mind.

Letven ​amasses a growing vocabulary of forms to create dynamic, complex works of art, suspended in space. The sculptures take the abstract components of language and thought and translate them into a physical, tangible form, that speaks to the complexity of the mind in handling various aspects of contemporary life.

Although Letven’s work is comprised of repeating patterns of signs and symbols that are familiar and universal on their own, the artwork invites viewers to develop new interpretations of each composition.
