Robert Mack presents an exhibition of his ongoing Wrapped Series at the Rose Gallery in Santa Monica, California on June 9 & 10, 2023.
Robert covers his subjects with sheer material creating intimate, moody work, that examines themes of emotion, dreams, beauty, death, even transcendence.
Where Christo and Jeanne-Claude wrapped buildings, Robert wraps the human form. His Wrapped Series photographs and films are captured at sunrise in the southern Californian hi-desert. Robert uses both digital and film mediums, without assistants or artifical lighting, creating intimate images that remain pure.
During a session, he swirls the sheer material in a way “ to paint “ his subjects with resulting artwork that looks more like paintings than traditional photography.
Robert’s photographs capture a moment of experience that reveals an inner deeper nature and asks us to reconsider them again and again.
Robert Mack’s fine art photography and films received major exhibitions at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Reiss-Engelhorn Museum in Mannheim, Germany. Robert also exhibits his work at galleries in America and throughout Europe.
“To me, there is nothing more interesting to photograph than the human face and form. A subject and photographer can enter into an unspoken pact and when this occurs the resulting image has the potential to transcend the two participants.“ Robert Mack
