Using wood, foam and resin, Maychack creates anthropomorphic shapes that jut and drip from the wall, hug the floor and seemingly spring from their supports. Space is altered, confounded and an animated environment unfolds.

Maychack’s sculptures imply both a collapse and rebirth of structure: forms defy gravity and expand beyond their recognizable origins, taking accidental, evolutionary pathways. A Thinnest of Betweens is a large Rorschach-like shape that gently adheres to the wall like a membrane, a tangible link between a mental construct and physical space.
