About Kevin Mack

Biography

Kevin Mack is a pioneering Digital Fine Artist and Academy Award winning Visual Effects Designer. He received the Oscar for his innovative work on the film "What Dreams May Come".

Mack began making fine art with computers in the mid-eighties. He helped pioneer the use of computer graphics for visual effects and became a creative leader in the development and application of digital art technology.
 
Among the first to exploit the unique capabilities of 3d printing, Mack produces unimaginable sculptural forms that cannot be achieved by any other means.
 
Mack's fine art practice explores philosophical, spiritual and scientific imponderables. His work is informed by research in a wide range of fields from neuroscience to quantum physics.
 
 
Statement

I utilize science and technology in an effort to create art that has never been seen before. I have an obsessive fascination with the visions, ideas and processes that inspire my work. The creation of vivid depictions and expressions of these imagined and emergent realities is my primary preoccupation in life.

I am focused on philosophical, scientific and spiritual imponderables. Digital technology enables me to dissolve traditional boundaries of medium, process, style and genre and create unimaginable new forms. My goal is to create compelling psychoactive objects and media that inspire contemplation and fascination. 

My images, sculptures and animations are created using a variety of digital tools. Digital painting and sculpting are incorporated with procedural techniques such as functional modeling and fluid dynamic simulation. Physically based rendering, which simulates the behavior of light, makes it possible for me to make virtual photography of my creations and discoveries. Selected images are printed on various media. 3d printing technology has enabled me to produce physical models of my virtual sculptures that could not be made any other way.

My process integrates intuition and intellect - deliberate design and random happenstance - realism and abstraction - humanity and technology - art and math - science and mysticism - philosophy and humor.
