Saul Chernick makes highly detailed ink drawings that combine masterful control of the individual mark with an incisive grasp of the history of drawing and various visual media. Borrowing from a broad range of references, but especially the prints, manuscripts, and illuminations of the Northern Renaissance, Chernick tweaks specific images and compositional methods from the past to shed light upon mortality, sexuality, and technology in contemporary life. Chernick received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1997 and an MFA from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in 2001. He has exhibited in galleries, museums, and cultural institutions across the US, including The Aldrich Museum, Ridgefield, Connecticut; Franklin Art Works, Minneapolis; the Bronx Museum, New York; and The Jewish Museum, New York. He has held residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture; the Lower East Side Print Shop in Manhattan; and the Arad Arts Project in Arad, Israel.
