Paul Fenniak was born in Toronto, Canada in 1965. He received his M.F.A. from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada and his B.F.A. from Queen”s University, Kingston, Canada.
Fenniak”s paintings have luminous surfaces and compelling images that offer a combination of disquiet, uncertainty, urgency, calm, and spirituality. His painting style includes a contrast of inner light and particular attention to detail, texture and atmosphere.
Fenniak’s pictures, whether single or multiple figure compositions, are not scenes of everyday life, rather, they are fictions, like theatrical illusions. They reference both the world of appearances and the constructions of the imagination. His approach, emotionally charged, fraught with ambiguity, and intimate, demands the viewer’s total involvement.
