Presenting another "artist I dig." This post, I bring you the work of painter Eric Mack.

Now, his stuff is difficult to describe, so I'll show you what he says about his own work:

While exploring and exposing various subject matter, my goal is to recognize how shape, form, and pattern are primary in our daily outlook.

The works created can be described as visual sheet music. Blocks and angles of color brushed and smudged across random perimeters of various medium. Broken and solid line work split and gel together the variety of hue and shape. Found within the core of the work are the cultural references, signs of technological advances, schematical diagrams, component dials and switches are all included for their fundamental form. Most of them are basic circles, squares, and triangles. When these ideas are put together it creates a piece of music that is seen instead of heard. The rhythm of life is inhaled and exhaled with each day that is given to us.

Here's some more of his stuff:
