Ray Mack

Ray Mack (b. 1985) grew up in the small town of Ellensburg, Washington.  She received her BA in Studio Arts from Bard College and her MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2012.  Mack’s work combines a childish sense of humor and style with the oil painting technique, compositional eye, and art historical references of a well trained and highly skilled artist. Using what she calls a “shoplifting mentality toward making,” her paintings riff off works by well known dudes, using humor to insert her own perspective into a male-dominated view of the art historical canon. Integrating recognizable historical elements, these paintings transform the source material from well understood cultural documents to ambiguous markers of a contemporary moment.  The material is the past but the product is the present. Her work has been exhibited and published both internationally and nationally.
