Mark Mizener, Bradenton Member Since January 2017 Artist Statement M.R. Mizener's gallery has a selection of paintings that are spontaneous renditions reflecting the beauty found in natural settings that have inspired him. This gallery also features his conceptual art. His goal as a conceptual artist and astrological researcher is to create a descriptive tool that delivers specific information about each degree of the zodiac. From this vision “Aquarian Age Symbols of Astrology” was born. Created out of apparent chaos or chance through random selection, the symbols materialize useful astrological data when the awareness of synchronicity is realized. The art that was imagined and recorded is the message and the message is the art. The random selection that seems to work inside an ancient and organized structure of the zodiac is the magic and the miracle! The art is a work in progress and Mark’s paintings will be featured as they unfold on the covers of new editions of his book that contains the full set (360) of symbols. The envisioned symbols were assigned a specific degree of the zodiac and are now being painted by M.R. Mizener.
