Jerry Zeniuk (born 1945) makes all-encompassing demands with his painting. It is a way toward life and it is a way toward happiness. Painting enables experiences that cannot otherwise be achieved with such pronouncedness and conciseness. The painter and the viewer both take part in this. The paint, the brush, the canvas and the paper are simple, reliable and cultivated prerequisites. They are also the gifts, which a long tradition hands down to the artist, so to speak as a promise. It is with these that Jerry Zeniuk has pursued his path for over thirty-five years. As an American artist who sometimes lives and teaches in Europe.
In 1977, he had his first stop at the Annemarie Verna Gallery. In the time since, this collaboration has grown to encompass seven solo and many group exhibitions. Jerry Zeniuk is an exemplary independent spirit. His art does not obey the logic of progress, for this destroys that which it leaves behind. His painting is innovative, each picture shining in its own newness. This form of innovation serves the preservation of a richness and of history. The presence in this moment casts light on that which was beforehand and still is to be seen.
The new pictures by Jerry Zeniuk supplement and enrich his previous oeuvre with treasures of great daring. Museums in Europe have fortunately championed this work: Winterthur, Bonn, Munich, Kassel ...
SOL LEWITT Retrospective in the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, through February 25, 2001. 'Hands down it is the most beautiful exhibition by a living artist in a New York museum in a long time, an antidote to the nonsense on view in several other museums around town, a rebuttal to soreheads saying there’s never serious contemporary art around any more, and also a digestible, brightly colored package just in time for the holidays.'
