Marking the artist's first major publication in his 30-year-plus career, Mel Kendrick: Woodblocks presents a collection of the American artist's wood block prints and water drawings.
Produced over a period from the early 1990s to the present day, Kendrick's prints explore bold yet complex arrangements, all the while introducing the subtle grain of the wood, signifying the organic quality of the artist's creative process.
These large-scale prints, typically measuring 3 x 2 metres in size, are largely informed by the artist's ongoing sculptural practice, in both spatial engagement and process.
Kendrick's work is discussed within the book through texts that investigate the relationship that the works hold with both architectural and artistic influencers, as well as with his well established sculptural practice, through which he has a storied history of using wood, bronze, rubber, paper and cast concrete.
