Influx Gallery - "I See An Alligator" Artist of the Month Honorable Mention

Artist Statement/Bio/CV


Artist Statement - In my paintings, I find connecting threads throughout the world and infuse humor into everyday scenarios. Sparked by personal experiences and the observation of my surroundings, I seek resonance in our shared thoughts, dreams, and idiosyncrasies, weaving them into the tapestry of my artwork. My recent series depicts Nara Park, in Japan, and the changing landscape from season to season. I find its history and beauty intoxicating and try to capture its magical essence while infusing a touch of playfulness into the narratives. I use a bright luminous palette to inject humor and color into the dull or show a different side of the expected. If a viewer stops for just a moment to reflect on a piece I have created and feels emotion from the thousands of colors captured on canvas, then I have succeeded in my work.

BIO - Born in 1965 in Beacon NY, Mark is an artist based in Las Vegas known for his impressionist paintings that capture people, places and all the events in his life.Timeless and tasteful, or modern and messy, images in his life demand to be examined. Mark mainly uses acrylic paint to create highly textured, three-dimensional works on canvas. A graduate of San Jose State’s art program, Mark’s first influence was his great uncle Alfred Pizzarelli, an artist from New York City in the 1950’s-60’s. He used to look at all Alfred’s wonderful paintings and wonder “Who are these people?” and think they were trying to speak just to him by way of expressions and surrounding colors. Mark’s paintings are meant to burst with energy, life and texture hoping that they might speak to the viewer in some way. You can catch Mark’s artwork around Las Vegas in casinos, restaurants, wineries and local/regional galleries. When Mark’s not working, he’s spending time with his wife Alicia and their English bulldog Belma hoping to catch the next expression to put on canvas.
