  Biography:

Bill Mack (September 25, 1947 -  )

Bill Mack is the world’s pre-eminent relief sculptor.  The relief format – In Mack’s case, “alto relief” – originated in ancient temple friezes and marble sepulchers. 

To excel in this exacting form, in which foreshortening poses daunting technical challenges, Mack is a master craftsman.  Each relief derives from painstaking studies of the foreshortened figure – a classic skill that is rare in today’s contemporary scene.

Mack’s figures – with their emotional beauty and soulful dignity-partake of the style “Romantic Realism,” of which the pre-Raphaelite painters are a leading historical antecedent.

His drawings and paintings, in the photo realistic genre, are extremely rare and are immediately recognizable as Mack’s.  They are rendered with a dimensional or “round” quality, since, while he is working in two-dimensions, he is always thinking of the images in three-dimensions.

Youthful and enthusiastic, stylish and unusual, from his rare art form to the mysterious red rose that he wears on his lapel each day, Mack enjoys one of the most successful, high profile careers in contemporary American art.
