About Mark Witzling Art

Artist Statement

My journey as an artist has evolved from representational oil painting to pure abstraction. I became fascinated with the art of the abstract expressionists and with abstract oil painting as a way to express myself creatively. To be “in the zone”. Painting is a solitary process and I find it meditative, and at times almost a form of prayer. My source of inspiration is truly multi-layered. Intellectually, I try to tackle intangible concepts in my paintings while technically I love using strong color, visually building up layers of paint and then excavating back down to bring forth a contrast of colors and textures. I began to focus on the technique of painting with oil and malleable cold wax medium as a fulfilling way of achieving the effects I was seeking and to bring out my personal creative visions. While painting, I rarely use traditional paint brushes, instead working with a variety of tools like pasty scrapers, rollers, sticks, and even old credit cards to apply and move paint around the surface. The result is often bold, sometimes subtle, and always, at least to me, optimistic, delightful, and engaging.

 I am pleased to have my work published in the award-winning book Cold Wax Medium – Techniques, Concepts, Conversations (Crowell & Mclaughlin, 2017) and in ArtFolio2020 - A Curated Collection of the World's Most Exciting Artists. My art has been featured in both print and television. You can also learn more about me in this article featured in the popular online art newsletter ArtsyShark by Carolyn Edlund.

Recently sold work includes placements with private collectors, custom commissioned work, and placement in both home and business environments.  Shop Art  to explore a selection of my work. Contact me for information about commissions or special projects.  I'll respond personally. Thanks!
