Visual Artist Mark Weiss began painting at the age of 23 after graduating from SUNY Albany with a degree in Psychology. His works are done automatically with no preconceived ideas. He feels the work is all one opus. A journey that goes through the underworld, which culminated for the artist with the experience of a clinical depression in 1990, and then the ascent into a more magical and mystical place. More about the artist Mark Weiss is on his site.
