Donald Schenkel is a young, upcoming artist who creates subtle color gradients with oil paints on a variety of materials such as wood, glass, canvas and paper. What he seeks is smoothness in the color that leads the watcher’s eye into the faraway. Schenkel’s works do not deal with illusion but revolve around the way oil paint can create transitions of shades in which the colors fade away into a soft darkness. Subtle transitions are found in blue hues leaning towards violet, indigo, viridian green and grey. Sometimes these colors flash purely from the canvas, at other times they are diluted into darkening twilights. Parallel to the creation and perfection of gradients, the artist constantly explores new forms of presenting these. This has caused the color gradients find their way onto sculptural objects as well as materials such as paper, wood and canvas. In the most recent works the use of glass is explored so as to expand the depth of blue.
