This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Abstract sculptor Mel Kendrick works with a variety of woods found in nature and the lumber yard that he cuts up, pierces, gouges, re-works and evisceratesoften recombining pieces in new configurations that usually end up cast in bronze. The artist uses a related process of cutting and joining varied pieces of wood in the creation of wood block prints. Kendrick illustrated, with abstract wood block prints, "Kora in Hell", published in 1998 by Arion Press, a book reflecting poet William Carlos Williams' thoughts during the year 1917.

Kendrick, born in 1949, graduated in 1967 from Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, where he later sat on a committee advising on the selection of a new director of the Addison Gallery of American Art there. He has been a visiting artist-lecturer at the The New York Studio Program of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design.

He exhibited the pierced, truncated forms of his "Core Series" at the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire. In 1997, the artist showed his work at the Grand Arts gallery and sculpture studio in Kansas City, Missouri.

His nearly nine-foot-high geometric bronze abstraction, created in 1994, stands in front of the Toledo Museum of Art, in Ohio. Kendrick's ten-foot-high Black Trunk, a segmented and reassembled, bronzed tree trunk, stands outdoors at the Grounds for Sculpture site in Hamilton, New Jersey.

Mel Kendrick's work is included in collections of the New York City museums: Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and Whitney Museum of American Art; the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Pennsylvania; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; and Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois.
