In the Words of Janos Enyedi

Deconstructivist Landscape Series

In the Words of Janos
"Aesthetically, I find an interesting and intrinsically humorous interplay between the illusion of 2-dimensional painting and the reality of 3- dimensional sculpture when I break or deconstruct the plain."

Memories of Milltown Series

"Milltown is an imaginary small factory town, not unlike Lake Wobegon. It is created from collective memories of every industrial city and town I have passed through since my earliest childhood experience of riding past the steel mills and refineries of Gary, IN, in a very gray autumn dusk. Those images pleasantly haunt and inspire me to this day."

Industrial Strength Landscape Series

“As my work progressed, I began experimenting with techniques which would allow me to recreate in paper, the details of steel that I have studied and become fascinated with over the years — torch-cut edges, welds, rivets, safety plate, and most importantly, RUST."
