Eric N. Mack

UNTITLED III

2018
dye and ink on paper
39 3/8 x 27 1/2 inches

Through works in a variety of disciplines, Eric N. Mack explores the color, tactility, and expressive potential of his chosen materials, be they traditional art supplies or everyday objects. At times, the materials, style, and flashiness of the fashion world are highlighted. In this work on paper, a spray of hot pink forms a floating halo anchored by deep blue geometric shapes, resulting in a work that is expressive, yet possesses a calculated coolness. Mack lives and works in New York. In 2017, Mack was the recipient of the inaugural BALTIC Artists’ Award selected by artist Lorna Simpson and completed the Rauschenberg Residency in Captiva Island, Florida, and an artist-in-residency at Delfina Foundation in London. Solo exhibitions include the BALTIC Artists’ Award 2017, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and Eric Mack: Vogue Fabrics, Albright–Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo. Group exhibitions include the Whitney Biennial 2019; Ungestalt, Kunsthalle Basel, In the Abstract, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art; Blue Black, Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St Louis; and Greater New York 2015, MoMA PS1, Long Island City.
