JOHN MACK: THE HERITAGE OF MANKIND
MAIN GALLERY MAY 18 - JUNE 22
RECEPTION MAY 18 6 - 8 PM
"Through my work I attempt to make connections between what is known and what we have yet to discover. The focus is on connections between our current experiences, the infinite possibilities of the future, imagination, mythology, our indelible curiosity and a personal drive to understand the universe and our place in it.
Drawing inspiration from themes in science and technology, science-fiction, and contemporary mythologies, I often seek to create fantastic organisms and impossible vessels for fictitious voyages, along with objects involving bizarre future technologies in an effort to satisfy my own fascination with what could be.
My intention is to invoke curiosity. The objects may appear familiar yet have instilled in them a sense of mystery as to their purpose and identity; stimulating the imagination and hopefully forcing us to think beyond what we know." - John Mack
