Christian Maychack


The sculptures of artist Christian Maychack inhabit pre-existing architectural structures and animate otherwise stationary objects. The sculptures either take place as an extension of a pre-existing form or are manifested from the artist’s imagination. Maychack employs the visual vocabulary of three-dimensional rendering animation and uses anthropomorphic qualities to enliven each form. The work is simultaneously in a state of decomposition and growth, referencing a transformation of the object or structure’s function. Maychack is an MFA graduate from San Francisco State University, and, this May, the artist will present his second solo exhibition with the Gregory Lind Gallery in San Francisco. Last year, Maychack participated in the California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art in California and completed an artist in residence with the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, California. The artist has also received a full fellowship residency from the Vermont Studio Center and has participated in a residency with Sirius Art Center in Ireland.
