Lenny Kislin


I have been selling unusual antiques since 1973. In the course of hunting for interesting objects to sell, I came across many pieces which were not so salable, but because of their forms, uniqueness, or rarity I was intrigued to the extent that I bought them anyway. I have saved these objects through the years with the intent of eventually finding a way to enable others to see what I saw in them.

In 1991, I began to physically join these forms into conceptual and narrative art objects that I felt utilized them to their best advantages. I have experienced great success and my work is in many public and private collections, world-wide.  What you see here in these pieces is the fruit of my passion for these here-to-fore under-appreciated objects.
