Mike Zisser

About the Artist

Mike Zisser paints mainly in acrylics and, occasionally, watercolors. His paintings are virtually all non-representational, reflecting his interest in abstract design elements, as well as geometric shapes that are visually "complicated" by various pairings of colors.

One of his major interests is the role colors play in the dynamics of composition and their effect on the visual perceptions of the observer, particularly as evidenced in the work of the color theorist Josef Albers and his seminal work "Theories of the Interaction of Color."

He attended the Art Students League in New York, and worked with many of the influential teachers of the League--including Charles Hinman and Terence Coyle.

His work has been in numerous curated exhibitions, including the Parrish Art Museum, Salmagundi Club, Maryland Federation of Art, the Art Students League, Art Center of Northern New Jersey, Guild Hall, Mills Pond House, Gallery East, Millennium Gallery, Las Cruces Museum of Art, Baker Arts Center, the Port Washington Public Library Gallery, and nationally at many other juried shows. He currently devotes himself full-time to his painting.
