Max Van Pelt

American, b. 1989

Maxwell Van Pelt makes intricate sculptures, dynamic paintings and hybrid installations that navigate the geometries of architectural, environmental and emotional space.

Van Pelt graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College in 2011, where his work in sculpture and drawing was awarded the Jonathan B. Rintels Prize for the outstanding undergraduate thesis in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Van Pelt spent a post-graduate year as an Intern and Special Instructor for the Department of Studio Art at Dartmouth. His work is held in the collection of the RISD Museum, Providence, RI, among others.
