Mac Mansfield

Lives and works in Sydney

Mac Mansfields practice negotiates the history of narrative visual art, working joyously across media subverting Ancient Greek and classical mythology. His work is visually theatrical and irreverent.

Working primarily in ceramics, Mac’s practice regularly involves making large traditional vessels as well as ceramic tablets that imitate stretched canvas. The painting and drawing on ceramic vessels and tablets are naïve and wilfully ignorant of the high culture the classical forms suggest. Through this consciously naïve approach an interest in combining modes of “high” and “low” art is explored. Ceramics enables Mac to traverse a dimensionality not possible through traditional mediums of painting.
