Interesting person this Kenney Mencher, born in the Bronx, NY he was a dropout from HS, now a professor and artist, his work is something of a mystery, possiblely some are self-portraits? This theme of glasses half-full, is he battling his own demons? His works seem to be revolving and I continue to be amazed with his work.
