Artwork by Mark Rosenthal (on display until January 2018)

Mark Rosenthal is a Brooklyn-based artist whose paintings are meditations on opposites: form and chaos, abstract and concrete, emotional and dispassionate. He is very pleased to be sharing his work through Art On Our Walls at The Farm on Adderley.

Mark was born in Miami and came to New York City to attend NYU for film and Cooper Union for painting. After working as a medical illustrator for The New York Times, Random House, the AMA and many magazines, he began teaching art to young children, including a long stint at The Town School in Manhattan. In 1995, he founded his own art school, The Art Center, which he still owns and operates on the Upper East Side.

Mark’s work has been shown in numerous galleries throughout New York, and he co-curated an exhibit at The Police Building in Lower Manhattan called Unwanted Figures of the Imagination. He currently lives and paints in Ditmas Park.

About his painting process, Mark says this: “I seek structure in a piece that will last – but at the same time, for the painting to be alive, it needs to be fluid and spontaneous. This tension between structure and fluidity is part of who I am and has kept me going for a long time. The peculiar and unique balance of each painting defines it and my state of mind at that moment.”

Mark is a member of the Flatbush Artists and will participate in this year’s studio tour on October 21 and 22. For more information visit www.flatbushartists.org or pick up a map with listings of artists’ studios at any business on Cortelyou Rd., including here at The Farm on Adderley.
