About

"Overflow" is a mysterious oil painting on canvas measuring 12" tall by 9" wide. For all it's modest size, it throws several punches above its weight. The title Overflow could be a warning or a condition, a commentary on the steady feed of excitement and doom... or equally a comment on our appetites for same? Regardless, the sense of piling on top of and the blowing out of boundaries and borders seems clear. Note the structural and compositional strategies of the artist – the triangle pool of light trying to pin down the canvas, the tangle of shape and color, a cubism that ultimately resolves itself.. 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).
