Mac Premo

Mac premo MAC PREMO is an artist who is immersed in the ongoing exploration into Systems Theory. That is, the interdependence of systems in nature, society and science. In the first two parts of an ongoing series aptly titled Understanding Everything, Premo looks to the innate human impulse to order and understand the world through the organization of systems. The myriad ways in which these distinct vocabularies interrelate, be they systems of physical (e.g. mathematics, science, etc.) or emotional data (e.g. memory, morality, etc.), is the primary subject of his meticulously crafted objects of wood, found objects and collage encased in poured resin. 

Premo’s work also explores the cyclical nature of systems in works that reference not only the physical process of art making, but also the transport and presentation of art. The exhibition includes a short animated film work in which the artist’s distinct style is expressed in a dynamic sequence of collage-like imagery. Mac Premo has been exhibiting his work since 1999, most recently at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and PS1 MOMA in Queens.
