On February 20th, Mckenzie Fine Art opened its doors to host a colored Pencil Exhibit. In works both representational and abstract, the exhibition explores the remarkable range of mark-making that can be achieved with colored pencil, from razor fine to dense and waxy, and everything in between. Colored pencil provides a vast chromatic range and greatly varying levels of translucency. Rob de Oude is one of the featured artists with his two works System Glitch-C01 and System Glitch-C04. Rob de Oude creates optically charged patterned fields by overlapping taut, finely-ruled lines in repeating color combinations.
Rob de Oude studied painting, sculpture and art history at the Hoge School voor de Kunsten in Amsterdam and SUNY Purchase, NY. He has shown in the US and abroad, notably at Galerie Gourvennec Ogor in Marseille, France, and Storefront Bushwick in Brooklyn, NY, and has participated in several art fairs in the US and Europe. de Oude has been featured a.o. in the NY Post, L Magazine, Artnet Magazine, NYArts Magazine, The New Criterion, Brooklyn Magazine, Bushwick Daily, ARTNews. He has his studio in Brooklyn, NY, and is founding member and co-director of Transmitter, NY.
