Mac’s passion has always been color and his primary inspiration the natural world around him.  Everyone enjoys the beauty of a sunset or the simple elegance of a flower but he’s rarely felt the need to recreate it.  Nature has already done that so well.  Intensity, harmony, and conflict in color intrigue him.  His preference is the use of contrasting, saturated color.  There are very few colors, when presented properly that cannot be used together.  Their very conflict makes a statement and the result is narrative that invites the viewer to become intimately engaged.

Mac sees his work as a personal interpretation but what you take from it has equal validity.  His inspiration is merely a guiding force, not an explanation.  Each piece offers a moment of awareness a journey presented in a carefully fashioned interplay of pigments, movement, and texture. Extending reality by exaggeration, distortion, and highlighting its passion.  The resulting imagery demands a deeper examination and beckons you into its vivid world of allusion. Whether the theme is social, emotional or psychological, each composition demands analysis. Only then will the hidden world of imagery and symbolism crafted into each piece reveal itself.

When asked to describe his work he calls it Digital Fusion or Digital Painting and his style as Digital Expressionism. 

Digital fusion or digital painting is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques are applied through the use of a computer, a digitizing tablet, and graphics software. Together they offer a virtual canvas with many of the tools of a traditional visual artist. While Digital Art is still in its infancy it has already become a powerful art form that continues to expand the possibilities of traditional photography.
Mac is a lifelong resident of the Long Island and can trace his family lineage back to the early settlers of the South Shore of Suffolk County.  His interest in photography started as a child, crediting it to the influence of several generations before him.
