I am an abstract artist. I try to express what I have no words for. My work is untitled.
I work in a non-rational state of being. I seek balanced, aesthetic equations, visual resolution.
Artist Bio / CV
My name is Jerome Marshak,
I was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1942. My journey as an artist began in 1965 when I was studying law at Washington University in St. Louis. Near the end of my graduate work, I realized that art, not law, would be my life's work.
In the late sixties and early seventies I exhibited my work at the Los Angeles Artist's Association and the Comsky Gallery. During this period I was associated with a group of Los Angeles high-tech minimalists. Those artists were instrumental in the formation of my aesthetic as an abstract artist.
Since 1981, I have made my home on Lopez Island, one of the San Juan islands off the coast of Washington state in northern Puget Sound. I have worked continually as an artist and have had little contact with the world of art. For the past five years, I have had the use of a remote studio on the southern headlands of Lopez Island. These recent drawings are the result of my time spent studying the light and lines of the marine landscape there.
