Eric N. Mack | Painting
The first thing you notice about American artist Eric N. Mack’s paintings is his use of unorthodox materials instead of the traditional canvas for his paintings. Fabric, rags, books, magazines, and used clothes are all possible finds when viewing his paintings. His work borders between painting and assemblage. It deviates from traditional techniques and expectations with the intent of exploring how the context or setting of different materials influences the perception of its value and beauty.
You can see Mack’s solo exhibition, Misa Hylton-Brim, until May 12 at the Simon Lee Gallery.
