TUNISIA

Paintings
Watercolors
Photography

Mona Mark, a native of New York City, received her BFA from The Cooper Union, her MFA in philosophy from the New School For Social Research and taught at the School of Visual Arts.

Her Images have a power and simplicity that reflect the stark beauty of Tunisia’s natural light. The economy of these images exemplifies her vision; an artistic vision which explores visual language.

Through series and multi media she reduces the complexity of her experience to simple forms as she continues her ongoing investigation of the relationship between man and nature.
