The colors, materials, and psychology of fashion often find their way into the work of Eric N. Mack. In this work, named after 1960s fashion designer André Courrèges, Mack combines bright, saturated smears of paint and decorative grass on a pegboard – the structural support used to display and sell products. The embellished surfaced and commercial support clearly identify the piece as an object of desire, ready to be “on view.” Mack’s work has been shown in galleries and museums in the US and Europe, and this year his first solo museum exhibition took place at Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo.
