About

"Plein Air Painter" is a key work of art among Peter Schenck's many remarkable paintings, and addresses situations that continue to fascinate the artist – the creative act, the performance of the artist, nerves of steel and nerves shattered all at once in a ridiculous, soulful lunge at something true. Or at least wholly true for a moment. The artist at the vanguard of free expression – brush and palette in hand, encouraged to fly, cheered by crowds whether soaring upward or crashing badly. "Plein Air Painter" is an oil paint and oil stick on canvas measuring 48" tall by 36" wide. It was originally shown at Peter Schenck's solo show at Arts + Leisure Gallery, New York City. From Daniel Gerwin – "Schenck’s color is vibrant, wild, saturated to the point of overheating, and altogether brilliant in the balancing of hues, temperatures, shapes, and color quantities. The paintings have a remarkable coherence for their dizzying juxtaposition of so many small chromatic passages." (Essay: The Anxiety and the Ecstasy) Peter Schenck lives and paints in Brooklyn, NY.  He received his BFA from Boston University (2006) and his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania (2009). Schenck has exhibited his work internationally and nationally, including Tales of Art Gallery (Imola, Italy), Sebastien Adrien Gallery (Paris, France), Freight + Volume Gallery (New York, NY), BravinLee Programs (New York, NY), Andrew Edlin Gallery (New York, NY), The Dot Project Gallery (London, UK), Arts + Leisure Gallery (New York, NY), Lesley Heller Workspace (New York, NY), The Delaware Contemporary Museum (Wilmington, DE), Tyler School of Art (Philadelphia, PA), Vox Populi Gallery (Philadelphia, PA), TSA Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Victori + Mo Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Airlock Gallery (San Marcos, CA), HOLA Fresh Start (Santa Monica, CA), and The Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science, and Technology (Santa Barbara, CA). Further, he has been an artist in residence at The Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, VT) and the DNA Residency (Provincetown, MA). Schenck has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Timeout New York, Juxtapoz, Two Coats of Paint, Battery Journal, #FFFFFF Walls, Painting is Dead Blog, and Elephant Magazine.
