NEW YORK, NY.- Lyons Wier Gallery announces the exhibition, Meditations by Mark Zimmermann.

Mark Zimmermann's work is based on the fusion of meditative fields, architectonic structures and an organic gestural line that is one-part intentional and one-part accidental. Zimmermann clearly demonstrates his deftness of hand through labored bands of color, building and editing one band upon other, until the editing process renders compositions that combine both hard-edge and action-painting abstraction.

His process begins by layering an initial ground laid down with palette knives and trowels. From there, the initial drawing gives shape to the composition to come. Over time, the elements are pushed back with repeated layers of a viscous wash and then brought back into play via sanding and then the process begins anew. By way of intent and incident, the true pure nature of the work takes shape and the final composition presents itself.

Zimmermann states, "For the past three years, I have attempted to create metaphorical landscapes within my work, referencing the natural world, architecture and my interest in history, travel and literature. These all played a role to create a visceral form of painting - at once, contemplative & muscular - an image that, through the use of color as metaphor, becomes capable of capturing something meditative and timeless.”

Mark Zimmermann has exhibited across the United States and abroad. His work is held in private and public collections such as JW Marriott Essex House Hotel, New York, NY, The Four Seasons Hotel, Washington, D.C., the Marriott Convention Center, Schaumburg, IL, The Palazzo Hotel and Resort, Las Vegas, NV, Norwegian Cruise Line, The Parisian Sands Macau Hotel, Macau, China, to name a few. The artist lives and works in New York City.
