Andrea Gaydos Landau: Control Point

With "Control Point," Andrea Gaydos Landau orchestrated a gallery take over: vines broke through the ceiling and erupted from the floor, and an accumulated density of linear vines formed an emerging pattern. Constructed like a drawing, the installation was composed from varying fabrics of different densities. They shifted like shadows; faint gestures of movement and life.

Andrea Gaydos Landau's broader studio practice tackles the notion of structure, both architectonic and organic, decorative and chaotic, along with processes that are suggestive of addition, division and subtraction. By building or compiling with pattern, Landau wishes to reveal information of a new order, or perhaps to expose the subtle possibility of an alternative cosmology.

Andrea Gaydos Landau received her BFA in Fiber and Material Studies from The Cleveland Insitute of Art and her MFA from the Cranbook Academy of Art. Andrea has shown in several exhibitions outside of school including the ‘First Look’ exhibition at The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in Peekskill, NY, featuring graduating, emerging artists from across the country. She also participated in a group show called ‘Delinquent Systems’ at Warren Robbins Gallery at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. Her work is also in the DaimlerChrysler Services permanent collection. Currently, she lives in Philadelphia and works at the Fabric Workshop and Museum as a Project Construction Technician.
