Bio

www.davidlefkowitz.net

David Lefkowitz is a visual artist and Associate Professor of Art at Carleton College.

His work in painting, installation, and mixed media (including repurposed refuse like cardboard, sticks, sheetrock and Styrofoam) addresses everyday paradoxes of perception, and larger questions that arise from them. Much of the work explores the blurry boundary between the human-built environment and the natural world.

Lefkowitz grew up in Nashville TN, and was a member of the quasi-legendary pop combo The Young Nashvillians. He received a BA from Carleton College and an MFA from the University of Illinois in Chicago.

Recent solo exhibits include “Other Positioning Systems” at the Rochester Art Center, and “Facilities and Grounds” at the Carrie Secrist Gallery in Chicago. The artist’s paintings of trompe l’oeil wall fixtures appeared in “Lifelike” at the Walker Art Center the Spring of 2012.

Lefkowitz’ work is represented in several collections, including the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Langen Foundation in Neuss, Germany, and the Miami Art Museum in Miami FL.
