ON VIEW THRU FEBRUARY 16, 2024: Distinguished for his drawings of surreal, nondeterministic figures, artist Mark Greenwalt creates humanoid forms of sculptural volume that defy the canons of proportion, challenge the underlying historic ideals of beauty, and question societal notions about depictions of monstrousness.
In his new series of drawings, Greenwalt draws on surfaces pregnant with evolutionary potential where his anomalous figures emerge as pictorial constructs that are free from contextual constraints. His drawings serve as objects of meditation about the nature of suffering and the enduring human spirit.
Greenwalt earned his MA from Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas (1986) and a MFA from The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York (1990). Since 2005, he has been a tenured professor with The College of the Mainland in Texas City. Since 2019, he has also been an instructor at MFAH’s Glassell School of Art. Previously, he taught at the University of Houston and Rice University (1993-2000).
Greenwalt’s work has been shown in various solo and group exhibitions, primarily throughout Texas. In 2021, he had a solo exhibition at South Texas College in McAllen. In 2022, his work was featured in group shows at Lamar University in Beaumont and the Glassell School of Art. Greenwalt’s work was also featured in Galveston Art Center’s 2018 group show, “Visual Pathology.”
