Since the 1970s, Mel Kendrick has charted a unique and innovative path of experimentation and provocative investigation into the fundamentals and possibilities of sculpture. Bringing together over 100 works that span nearly five decades, this exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the artistic evolution of one of the boldest and most consistently adventurous artists of his generation. Exploiting the essential properties of his selected medium, whether wood, rubber, paper, or concrete, Kendrick creates works that lay bare the process by which they were made. Visible traces of his trial-and-error method—marks, cuts, paint, oil stains—compel us to unravel the mystery of each sculpture’s making and in doing so share in the artist’s meditations on the relationships between inside and outside, solid and void, organic and geometric, and nature and culture.
