Statement

Marc Schimsky’s figurative paintings and mixed media abstractions deal mainly with the fleeting nature of life and the passage of time. His representational works often capture subjects mid-stream in a familiar activity.
Marc likes to work with an abundance of vibrant color and he generally keeps the brushwork in his paintings loose and expressive so as to integrate the subject with the composition. Borrowing qualities found in photography, Marc blurs parts of his figures and frequently develops a pattern of overlapping shapes to convey a sense of movement and action in his work and uses this as the focal point of many of his paintings. Occasionally, his paintings portray people and places in the Susquehanna County, PA., area but Marc is also fond of using family members and close friends as subjects.


In contrast to his figurative works, Marc loves the intuitive and improvisational aspects of abstraction. He finds the challenge of creating an abstraction “liberating.” His mixed media abstractions are composed of layers of engaging colors, textures, and flattened “found objects.” Many of these abstract arrangements communicate his preoccupation with time, history and travel. Some are personal comments on the ironies of life.


In July of 2007, Marc won “BEST-IN-SHOW” at the Roberson Museum’s 2007 Regional Juried Art Exhibition. Two of Marc’s large oil paintings – “Red Dress” and “Waiting For An Answer” - were selected by juror, Philip Pearlstein, a well-known, internationally acclaimed realist painter, for the top prize.
