Buttermilk Carousel is a show about circumventing expectations and celebrating risk. Primarily through color and form, he creates labyrinths for the viewer to experience as they see fit. One can dive in and lose themselves, or simply enjoy the surface hues. With an education in sculpture and a love for painting, Kevin interchanges fabric and thick paint to create illusive portals and self-reflective mirrors. The freedom to make what one wants, rather than what one feels they should, is an important duty of artists that is easily lost if not exercised regularly.
Kevin Mack is a painter from the Philadelphia area with a BFA from Tyler School of Art in 2013; currently living and working out of Pittsburgh. Along with studio painting, he also works with murals, photography, and fashion design.
