Mark Poss

"The reason I paint is pretty simple, I love the process of aesthetic contemplation. I find the process continually enhances the appreciation of life. Looking at a painting frees the mind from conventional concerns and making a painting is form of aesthetic calisthenics. It keeps the aesthetic skills in tune and grows the ability to appreciate and enjoy.

Influences are just about anything, from the natural world to the man made. Artistic influences in the traditional realm include 17th Century Dutch, 19th Century French - Corot in particular, and 19th Century American with George Inness as the major player. Artistic influence in the abstract world include Gerhard Richter and Clyfford Still."
