These works are not proclamations about a particular way one should think, but to give reverence to the process of thinking.

Brian Mark’s spectacular artworks revealed beautiful images, hypnotic patterns of precious metals, and the shimmering aftereffects of mysterious almost alchemical, process. I was transfixed by the multi-layered, elusive piece in front of me and thought: This is magic.

The Humanist Vs. The Dogmatic.  By Brian mark. Ab. 1967
24k gold electro-plated on stainless steel panel with acid treatments.

By Tony Libera. The Art of Dripping Acid. Minnesota Daily.
It’s not often that someone creates an entirely new mode of self-expression. Most people are stuck within the confines of tradition or certain stylistic tendencies, be it in writing, film or fine art. Brian Mark, on the other hand, is one of the select few to have transcended convention, using an innovative method of pouring acid on stainless steel. This bold medium allows for an experience that is wholly unique and deeply mesmerizing.

Thank you to our gracious host Vickie Benson of the McKnight Foundation for their invitation in the opening exhibition of the new Whitney Museum last week. We do hope you can see it when in New York this summer.

First of all a big thank you to The Jonathan LeVine Gallery and an apology to all of you trying to get in touch with me. With all this work in front of me I understand that I’ve been less accessible, I apologize. I do not seem to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. I will do my best to reply to everyone but this will take me some time I am sorry for the delay.

A sincere thank you to Professor Cory Way at the Harvard Law School for his invitation to speak to his class, it was truly heartening to witness such great minds in action. Those of us in the fine art and creative economies are indebted to you for focusing your students on the complex realities which artist are facing in todays world.
