BRETT McCORMACK (b. 1984) is an American contemporary artist living in New York.
Raised in rural northern Maine, McCormack's love of nature has influenced his artistic life from an early age in the form of murals, paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts. His work has been seen in museums, galleries, private collections, and publications all over the world and he is consistently collaborating with some of the world's most influential creative forces in fashion and interior design.
Creating forms by hand-manipulating paper has become a focused passion after much encouragement from British Designer, Selina van der Geest, and host of McCormack's first solo paper exhibition, Birds of a Feather (June 1, 2013 - June 30, 2013). The exhibition included several paper sculptures and illuminated decorative objects.
Into the Woods, a paper installation at Jules Maeght Gallery (October 15, 2015 - January 30, 2016) focused on death and decay as a necessary source of life in nature. Memories of a decaying forest in black provided a visual contrast for the life that depends on it, shown in white.
Gustav Klimt and the Women of Vienna’s Golden Age, 1900-1918, now showing at New York's Neue Galerie (Sept 22-January 16, 2017) features McCormack's paper artistry with the fashion design of Han Feng. www.neuegalerie.org
