I do not include art picks in my investment advice, but if I were to do so, Barry Mack’s work would be at the top of my list! I highly recommend that you become familiar with his extraordinary portfolio of abstract paintings, as I believe time is running out to scoop the art world on this gifted artist. Barry paints not only with acrylics, but with light. Light for Barry is a medium in itself. In person, each canvas is like several living paintings in one, as the light picks up and reflects nuances of color and energy in the surrounding space. I don’t feel as though I am simply viewing a painting, but rather that I am part of the living, creative energy that animates his images. Somehow Barr…
It’s so huge. The art that you make, the effort that goes into it. The goal I guess. It’s something really really big. Whether you ever made a piece of art in your life… your intention and your ideas are inspiring in themselves. Your will to create is enormous. And that doesn’t just say something about you and your ambition, which I find to be so motivating… it says something about what else is out there. What else is making up this universe, this reality… and even more than this reality. I am incredibly happy that you do this. That this is all part of you. Knowing you feels very very lucky. –Sarah S.
I have two of Barry’s paintings…I picked them not only for their beauty, but for the way they make me feel. Looking into his works puts me at peace, in a world that seems to always want to do the opposite to people! Barry’s personality is reflected in his art, and it’s readily apparent that this artist views the world’s light through a beautiful, peaceful lens.Every day, I enjoy a slice of what it must be to see as he does. His works attracted me immediately, as I love his play between darkness and light. –Leah Kando

"As I look at this wonderful painting again, of course I see more and I see the painting differently. That is natural as one experiences a piece of art more fully. It is as if I see a man with a very high spiritual aura surrounding him and perhaps he is accompanied by a spirit guide or angel. There's a sense of movement in the painting, as if there is wind. Wind is the Holy spirit in ancient text. Interestingly, I see an Etruscan horse.
The painting has many different levels to be experienced. The spiritual… Continue reading
The unveiling of "Rise", my latest commission (documented in earlier blog entries), was the perfect culmination of a process artists always wish for. Client and artist collaborated in the joyful creation of an image that exceeded mutual ambitions. The level of commitment, engagement, synergy and courage to express or create new ideas was superb. We were both sensitive to and respectful of the delicate balance involving creative freedom and client vision. Working in genuine harmony, the result went beyond art and into the realm of something a bit more mysterious and hard to articulate. It was like that rare adventure… Continue reading
