About Marsha Solomon

Marsha Solomon has been living and working as a painter in the New York area for over twenty-five years.

Before moving to New York, Solomon received a B.A. in Art from the University of Maryland, and did graduate studies in painting at the highly regarded Maryland Institute of Art, and later at the Art Students League in New York. She worked as an art teacher both in the public schools in Baltimore, and as a private instructor.

Marsha Solomon’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in the New York area, as well as in Chicago, Washington, DC, and Columbus, Ohio. She has been included in publications such as The New York Art Review and NY Arts Magazine.

After painting large abstract works for many years, Solomon has returned to realism with an extensive series of still-lifes on both canvas and paper. Her training in abstraction has given her a unique approach in composing her paintings, in which she explores the relationships of movement and color, arranging them in an apparently flattened space. Marsha cites her inspirations in this series as being sources as diverse as Japanese woodblock prints, the color and linear flow in Matisse’s work, and still-life compositions from Dutch genre paintings through Cézanne.
