Gary Schechner


Chicago artist Gary Schechner is fueled by a passion for all things with a motor. Schechner finds inspiration in the technology, lines, curves and livery of race cars, as well as from his first-hand experience of twisting the throttle open and 'dragging a knee' as an amateur motorcycle racer. His fine art practice, ‘abstractRPM’ (rpm= revolutions per minute and is the standard measurement for how fast and engine is turning over) is centered around his interpretation of these passion points. Schechner was selected by a panel of judges for Line Dot's Third Annual Juried Show.
