Art In America

Mel Kendrick

at David Nolan,
527 W. 29th St.

A vibrant show of Mel Kendrick's recent works, "Water Drawings" features an abstract wood sculpture centered around a process of deconstruction and reconstruction. The stained red mahogany Red Wall #6 (2013), an atypical example constructed with facets of organic shapes, corresponds to the 20 large cast pulp-paper works (up to 80-by-60 inches) that are the highlights of the show. These richly textured, unique pieces featuring interlocking rounded shapes were created by pressing pigment-stained rubber molds into the paper paste and allowing them to dry. Retaining a sense of fluidity, these elegant works are more like relief sculptures than "drawings."
