BIOGRAPHY

 

Edward Lentsch is a well-established mid-career painter working in mixed media on canvas. Lentsch’s monumental sized works exhibit unique surfaces and refined textures while also reflecting a contemplative element of alchemy and spiritual introspection. The spiritual overtones of Lentsch’s painting are captured by his titles, where he uses mystical images and esoteric subjects to inspire the imagination of his viewer. His titles are compelling as he reaches for what he refers to as a “dialog that redefines synectic reasoning…” (a concept first coined by Buckminster Fuller --20th century visionary inventor.) Wikipedia contributor William Gordon describes synectics as: a problem solving approach that stimulates thought processes of which the subject is generally unaware. He describes this method as, “Trusting things that are alien, and alienating things that are trusted." In Lentsch’s work he often pairs paintings with titles that attempt to explain this idea of synectic reason by connecting a vast matrix of complex relationships between science and mysticism and the metaphysical and spiritual.
