BRETT McCORMACK is an American contemporary artist, designer, and co-owner of Gallery & Goods. His range of work in the decorative and fine arts has been seen in Elle Décor, Veranda Magazine, Harper's Bazaar and The New York Times as well as in museums, galleries, and private collections all over the world. 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 medium after much encouragement from British Designer, Selina van der Geest, and host of McCormack's first solo paper exhibition, Birds of a Feather (June, 2013) at NL-GB in Bangall, NY. The exhibition included several paper sculptures and illuminated decorative objects. Gallery & Goods houses several made-to-order steel and hand-painted furniture collaborations by van der Geest and McCormack.
Into the Woods, a paper installation at Jules Maeght Gallery in San Francisco (October, 2015 – January, 2016) focused on death as a necessary source of life in nature. This theme has remained consistent in much of McCormack’s work.
In 2016, Neue Galerie (New York) commissioned McCormack to create a series of paper headpieces to be shown on mannequins adorned in dresses by Shanghai/New York based artist and fashion designer, Han Feng. These creations were integrated with some of Gustav Klimt's most important society portraits including Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I for the exhibition: KLIMT and the Women of Vienna's Golden Age (1900-1918).
