UPSTATE Gallery on Main is honored to present Inhabiting Experience, a selection of recent works by Greenville, SC, painter Mark Brosseau. The exhibition opens on July 11 and runs through August 25, 2017. An artist reception will be held on July 20 from 5-8 pm during Spartanburg ArtWalk.
Inspired in part by his artist residency in Iceland, Brosseau’s pulsating abstractions celebrate the idiosyncrasy of visual experience and simultaneously negotiate our facility to process it. Using effervescent color and primary forms in deceptively complex ways, alternatively opaque and revealing layers create neatly stacked yet constantly mobilized spaces. Whimsical yet seductive, these ever-shifting images gently challenge the viewer to find their own stability in our oscillating universe.
Mark Brosseau, originally of Vermont, earned his BA from Dartmouth College in 1998 and MFA from the University of Pennsylvania School of Design in 2001. In addition to being awarded the 2001 Fulbright Fellowship for painting, Brosseau also completed an artist residency in 2002 at Straumur International Art Commune in Hafnarfjordor, Iceland and was the co-director of Tiger Strikes Asteroid Philadelphia from 2014-2016. His work has been featured in over 70 group and solo shows and over 30 publications and is included in numerous public and private collections throughout the U.S., Iceland, and the Netherlands.
UPSTATE Gallery on Main is open 12-5, Tuesday-Friday.
