(°1978) received his BA from Vassar College and his MFA from University of Cincinnati College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning.
Through both two-dimensional art and installation, Schenck addresses the conditions of persona, as well as the role society plays in the construction of identity. The artist’s body of work articulates tactile and gestural expressions of self-examination, the importance of visual balance and clarity, and the daily numbness experienced as one journeys for approval.
Schenck summarizes the results of his process as “2-D performance.” The aesthetic should always feel fun and welcoming, while the undercurrent stems from an urgent, honest insecurity. Schenck currently lives and works in Cincinnati.
