Mark Baum painted continually for more than 70 years during the twentieth century. In the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, he pursued a direct representational technique with city and landscape motifs, painting in Manhattan, Central Pennsylvania, Georgia, rural New York, and Provincetown.
In the 1960s, he relocated to southern Maine, where his style evolved to become exclusively non-objective and large format canvases exploring compositions of small repeated elements and color nuance. He wrote, "My paintings are based on units organized into groups and movements and rhythms which attempt to parallel the flow of human emotional life."
Mark Baum was an active painter until the time of his death at age 94. For more information about the artist, please visit http://www.markbaum.com.
