Visiting faculty for the Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies, Honour Mack presents Resolving Chaos, an exhibition of recent abstract paintings and drawings that ask questions that address the confluence of belief systems, the role of spirituality in art, and the possibility of creating a transcendent object.
Mack’s recent paintings and drawings are inspired by the intersection of early esoteric philosophies and early advances in the sciences. Mack says, “The documents that the artists and scientists left behind offer up a fresh sense that, magic and mystery are real, and the results of their experiments can inspire our own curiosity and sense of awe.”
Honour Mack received her Master of Fine Art from Yale University School of Art in New Haven, Connecticut, and her Bachelor of Science from Skidmore College in upstate New York. She has received Fellowships to attend the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, the Vermont Studio Colony in Vermont, and at Chautauqua Institution in New York, and has been a visiting artist and critic at Colby College, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Massachusetts College of Art, University of Washington in Seattle, and the University of Pennsylvania. Professor Mack has exhibited her work in New England and across the United States, including exhibitions at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, The University of Southern Maine, University of Maine, Colby College Museum of Art, Plymouth State College, and Alpha Gallery in Boston. Most recently, she has had solo exhibitions at Aucocisco Gallery in Portland, Maine and ICON Contemporary Art in Brunswick, Maine.
