Visiting Artist Lecture: Eric N. Mack

Eric N. Mack’s work varies from sculpture and installation, to wall pieces and work on paper. His aesthetic involves a particular type of tactility and usage of common items, primarily those related to clothing. Readymade elements, such as garments, blankets, pegboards, magazine pages, and grommets, recompose and transmute via usage of mediums like acrylic paint, glitter, and dye. Mack’s visual language speaks through these materials, as well as through color and texture, optics and flux. His works flow and shift, alive with a spectrum of hues, irregular shapes, and poetic drama. References to the fashion industry and the figure impart a seductive quality, connecting to identity or a material fiction of desire and intention.

Eric N. Mack (b. 1987, Columbia, MD) lives and works in New York, NY. He received his BFA from The Cooper Union, New York, NY and his MFA from Yale University, New Haven, CT.  Mack’s work is in the permanent collections of Albright-Knox Art Gallery; Hood Museum of Art; The Studio Museum in Harlem; and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
