Moving fluidly between sculpture, painting, and installation, Eric Mack utilizes material which "privileges content that operates in the world rather than in self-reference; objects that seek audaciously an outside gesture". Working with common items such as textiles, clothing, printed images, and readymade objects, Mack intervenes upon their surfaces with paint and dye, creating a fusion of incongruous elements. His pegboard paintings maintain an engagement with the history of abstraction, while Mack’s recent assemblages signal a departure from the modernist grid. Mack's work juxtaposes the familiar and the unknown, hinting at the human form, while creating visual analogs for the the relationships we encounter in our daily experiences.
