American 1949 - Present
Mel Kendrick is an American artist born 1949 in Boston, MA. The artist's education includes a BA from Trinity College in Hartford, CT, and an MA from Hunter Colege in New York City, NY. The artist has been in numerous solo and group exhibits throughout his career.
Based in New York since 1971, Mel Kendrick is best known as a sculptor, though he has consistently worked on drawings. This practice goes back a long time—the six woodblock works on exhibit date from 1992 to 1993. As Mark Pascale, a curator at the Art Institute of Chicago, explains in an accompanying catalog essay, the imagery in these compositions results from being printed from “horizontally aligned sheets of plywood.” The application of ink is heavy, and the imagery looks thoroughly abstract.
He currently lives and works in New York City.
