The Water’s Edge
Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Artist Mark Lefkowitz
I am captivated by light and form, and the integration and synergy of natural elements – clouds, rocks, earth, water, plants and animals. I am intrigued by the interplay of light and atmosphere, and the beauty of reflections, transparencies and rich textures. Peaceful Glen was created digitally, using 3D and 2D software interfaces as my palette. This painting emerged in my mind’s eye, and is not based on any photographs of an actual place.
I strive to weave forms of nature into patterns and spaces bathed in atmosphere. These images are based on exploring the natural world – sights, sounds and smells that infuse my creative eye. My goal is not to produce images that are simply photorealistic, but rather to create visions that evoke curiosity, tell a story, or create a mood – engaging the mind and the senses. I hope that this image triggers a memory or recalls a dream, reminds you of a familiar place or a place awaiting your discovery.
For more than 30 years, I have been exploring the worlds of biology and medicine as a certified medical illustrator. I graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA with high honors in drawing, and The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine with a master’s in medical and biological illustration.
