MYRON MELNICK

Myron Melnick is recognized for his three-dimensional hand-cast paper sculptures. By burnishing the paper, he gives the surface the appearance of stone, wood, or marble. That treatment, along with the monumental size and volume of the forms, gives the illusion of weight. Melnick uses ordinary forms, for example, shoes or tea cups, to create new visions of the objects. His prints and paintings are based on his sculptural work and sometimes employ the same subjects of stacked objects. Among Melnick's honors is a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship Grant in 1990. His work is in a number of collections, including those of Oprah Winfrey and the United Nations.

 

 

A powerful, mysterious, and spiritual presence predominates throughout my work. My pieces allude to an urban architectural, archaeological presence. I think a lot of my work looks like it was dug up or found. In some cases, it is. I am influenced by primitive cultures as well as modern art. My works are half idea and half object.
