Eric N. Mack: "Misa Hylton Brim"

Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition by New York-based artist Eric N. Mack (b. 1987, Columbia, MD), the artist’s first solo presentation in London and with the gallery. The exhibition will feature his signature large-scale assemblages that oscillate between painting, sculpture, the readymade and performance, and initiate a dialogue between fashion and art.

Mack refers to himself as a painter, yet his works rarely observe the medium’s traditional canvas-to-stretcher format. Rather, his tactile creations, made from a dynamic combination of used textiles, worn clothes, moving blankets and torn rags, alongside photographs and pull outs from books and magazines, extend and transform the notion of painting. His use of colour, form and material as elements in a compositional lexicon as well as the stained or dyed fabrics which are his principal medium, declare the origin of his practice in the investigation of painting in an expanded field, while the way his compositions occupy and transform space are evidence of their sculptural nature. They are both paintings and sculptures – fully engaging with both disciplines. Recomposed with oil and acrylic paint, fabrics are hung using ropes and rods so that each architectural composition expands into the viewer’s space. In this way, Mack interrogates the very nature of painting, opening up a dialogue that explores the performative qualities inherent to his process, and how it both conflicts with and enhances the notion of painting as essentially still.
