Philip Vanderhyden is an artist living and working in New York. Vanderhyden earned an MFA from Northwestern University in 2004 and a BFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2001. Vanderhyden has exhibited extensively. His paintings, videos and projects have been reviewed in Art in America, Artforum, and The New York Times, among others.
In 2014, Vanderhyden concluded a three-year project of forensically reconstructing the work of the late artist Gretchen Bender at venues such as The Poor Farm in Little Wolf, Wisconsin and The Kitchen in New York and the 2014 Whitney Biennial.
He has since been working primarily on large scale, video-based wall works, which investigate cross-currents between the languages of finance, painting, virtual reality and advertising.
