Kenney Mencher, A Painter like no other…


“A painterly Peter Sellers, Mencher’s works are like the film “Being There.” Mencher likes to watch.

Citing literature, television, film, and stage drama, as major influence’s on his work, Mencher’s objective is to present a figurative composition divorced from its context that forces viewers to create their own interpretation of the narrative. By combining calligraphic gestural brushstrokes with passages of tight traditional glazing techniques, Mencher’s work explores the thread of human connection that is woven into our experiences. Collaged from posed photographs and pop-culture, Mencher’s paintings are frozen moments in a play. Sometimes these moments are outrageous or surreal and the figures in his paintings are character actors caught up in the action.”
