ABOUT THE ARTIST

Mac Whitney lives and works in his country studio of 40+ years in Ovilla, Texas, southeast of downtown Dallas. A Kansas native, Whitney came to Dallas in 1969 and focused primarily on his work as a full-time sculptor. He began to create increasingly complex art forms, significant in design and scale, and in 1979 was commissioned by the City of Houston to build a large-scale sculpture for Stude Park (off I-10). Whitney’s work has shown nationally and internationally continuously over the last 40+ years. His sculptures are constructed of raw steel and are a metaphysical expression of the fundamental forces of tension and resolution evident in the built environment.
