About

Mark Astrom (b. Miami, Florida 1977) is an artist based in Gainesville, Florida.

His work weaves in and out of American middle-class identity, testing ideas of want, aspiration, failure, migration, and reinvention.

As he and his subjects evolve, Mark thinks about gravity pulling time forward:

What do we keep?

What do we let go?

What can we absorb?

What do we reject?

Astrom received a Bachelor of Arts in both Economics and Fine Arts from Gettysburg College and an MFA, focusing on Photography from The School of Visual Arts in New York.
