Posted on November 10, 2010 by School of Art

Mark Wyse is a professional printer, a photographer and an educator based in Los Angeles. Wyse obtained his B.A. from University of Colorado and M.F.A. from the School of Art at Yale University. He makes technically assured yet enigmatically reticent images showing traces of past life or activity. Wyse’s photographs reflect ambiguously upon the relationship between the mix of conscious and unconscious intentions that is the stock and trade of photography’s relation to the world. Public collections include the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Yale University Art Museum. Wyse is currently represented by Wallspace Gallery in New York City and has recently exhibited his work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Danziger Projects, and Robert Mann Gallery in New York, as well as Blum & Poe and Sandroni Rey Galleries in Los Angeles.
