Donald Schenkel (1991) creates subtle gradients with oil paints. He seeks for smoothness in color transitions that can lead the eye into the faraway.

Throwback to last year's presentation at Simone's ART[s] Gallery in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, where I presented a first series of wall sculptures that combine traditional materials like oil paint on linen with hard wood in a minimalist aesthetic.

This installation piece is a monumental work of four oil paintings on linen that appears to hover on top of a sea of 1500 kg shards of glass that are individually painted to reflect the principle of the gradients. Polylith with Monolith refers to many and one, the many rocks underneath the singular shape. In this installation Donald Schenkel strived to bring all different aspects of this artistic practice together, as colours dazzle, materials intrigue and the installation interacts with the space of Root Gallery for which it was developed.
