SaraNoa Mark (b. 1991 New York, NY) pursues a drawing practice that reflects a desire to evidence the constant and invisible activity of time. After graduating from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, SaraNoa Mark was recognized with a travel scholarship that supported a visual pilgrimage to Europe’s museums, cave paintings, and natural sites. Mark’s work was supported by a grant from The John Anson Kittredge Fund. She has been an artist in residence at The Lois and Charles X. Carlson Painting Residency, Sedona Summer Colony, Art Kibbutz, and the Montello Foundation. SaraNoa Mark is a Director at the 4th Ward Project Space in Chicago. She also works as a museum guard at the Oriental Institute, building an intimate relationship from its antiquities collection. SaraNoa Mark is currently a BOLT resident at the Chicago Artists Coalition.
