MARK E. ZIMMERMAN

Artist Profile

Painting

My artistic mission is to create and cultivate my own unique visual language.

This language results from the interaction between intellect, chance, spontaneity, and vision. I have observed that my vision is informed by every experience I have had and by every emotion I have felt. So, even though I don’t paint a specifically emotional painting, the emotions brewing just below the surface rise into the work, affecting the thousands of decisions that need to be made which graphically influence form, content, and composition.

By relying on my intuition over my intellect, I put myself in that wondrous place where it feels like the painting has created itself and re-created me in the process. My work is, for me, a transformation accelerator.

Photography

My photographs, like poetry, seek to invoke emotions beyond the confines of the images themselves. Using the language of fantasy and imagination, I create images that are as equally about the artist as they are about the subject matter. I approach each photographic scene cinematically, working to display a depth that can be interpreted in many ways. I love to create photographs that embody the Mysteries, raising more questions than they give answers.

Mark is a transplanted Bostonian who has lived and worked in New York for over 30 years. Mark studied at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and utilized his background in classical painting to develop his unique style.. His paintings show a steady movement through the various schools of modern painting of the 20th & 21st Century.

His interest in art has flourished as he traveled extensively, collected art and continued in the development of his own painting and design techniques. In the early 1990’s Mark studied the techniques of watercolor painting, used these techniques in graphic and color field paintings and then adapted these techniques to acrylics and to his interest in the EXPLOSION OF COLOR, EXPLORATION OF MOVEMENT and EXCITEMENT IN DISCOVERY which has become the essence of his work.
