Mark Schoening


By synthesizing ideas of modern technology and the experience of life in the information era, the artist Mark Schoening offers a social commentary about the effects of inescapable media. While the paintings are a reflection of our time, they certainly speak of the possibilities and ramifications of future technological growth. Schoening attempts to capture this atmosphere in a fixed image, allowing the viewer the opportunity to step back and contemplate their relationship to the recent influx of technology, advertising and media and how we process this information. Schoening currently lives and works in Boston. He is a graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art and will exhibit this year with artist Shawn El C. Leonardo at the RHYS Gallery in Boston, Mass. Previous exhibitions include “Balletic Disintegration” with Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Mass., and “Project 604″ at the National Arts Club in New York City.
