About Zack Goulet

Ambiguity between figures, foreground, and background are fundamental to abstraction. Zack Goulet pushes this ambiguity to startling effect, approaching the canvas as a compositional dilemma, and working both intuitively and algorithmically to build layers of paint that differ drastically in texture and technique. Inspired by such fundamental issues as the science of spirituality, and perception of reality, Zack’s work draws upon outsider and folk art compulsions for visual storytelling. Zack also seeks to emphasize the relevance of handcrafted works in a digitally-saturated world.

Based in Chicago, Zack received his BFA in Painting from the College of Visual Arts in Saint Paul, Minnesota. He has participated in a number of gallery exhibitions in Chicago at the Hairpin Arts Center, ARC Gallery, and the Three Seeds Gallery. His work is held in the collection of sculptor Nick Cave, and in 2020 Zack was named a Saatchi Art Rising Star.
