Oil on canvas
Staff pick, 11/17/17:
I came across the work of Luke Mack earlier this year and was drawn to it immediately for its sharp sense of design– upon first glance the paintings appear to be digitally manipulated photographs, carefully pieced-together compositions of photorealistic figures amid minimal abstraction. This attention to design made further sense when I found out Luke is an automotive designer by trade. His bold yet carefully rendered car sketches, occasionally posted to his instagram, inform the clean lines and sleek compositions of his paintings; but they also make the creativeness with which he approaches each painting that much more intriguing. The work’s refined color palettes and compositions allow them to be easily incorporated into any home or office decor, while still holding visual interest time and time again.
As an emerging artist, Luke Mack’s work also has the advantage of being extremely affordable. This 30″ x 40″ acrylic on canvas painting is available for $650, and would make a striking addition to any room, whether you’re a seasoned collector or a first-time buyer. – Annie Aqua
