Gregory Lind Gallery will present new work by Christian Maychack, whose sculptural pieces challenge the normative relationships between object, pictorial space, and spectator. Maychack’s most recent body of work—both wall and large-scale floor pieces—is assembled from pigmented and marbleized Magic-Sculpt, combined with woven wood and caning. Using these materials to create objects that hover between sculpture and painting, Maychack’s work explores the distinction between the two, as boundaries dissolve and objects seem to decay
