Eric Mack (b.1976, Charleston, South Carolina) creates mathematically based renderings with a distinct post-modern twist. Works are informed with super imposed grids, patterns, and portals. Layered surfaces are created with paint, found objects, minerals and natural fibers, and synthetic substrates that explore the systems of our visual world.
