 Since early human history, the visual image continues to be one of our most powerful forms of expression. Barry Mack's art images convey a power of abstraction that welcomes one into space. His breadth of subtle colors combined with strong geometric shapes invoke space within the mind as well as vast space of the universe. His images beckon and capture our attention to explore this space.

 Barry has the knowledge of traditional painting, photography and computer art. The computer as an art tool is much like that of photography in the nineteenth century. Photography was initially ignored as an art form but endured and has gained full acceptance. Many artists are now using the computer to create their artistic vision. Barry's art shows his expertise in all these media. This unique book presents an encompassing view of a truly multi-talented artist.
