Allegory of Desire from the Fourth Freedom: Superb Paintings of Marc Dennis

0

Marc Dennis is an American artist known for his hyper-realistic paintings that celebrate the subversive potential of art history, beauty and humor.

Throughout his career, Dennis has honed hard rock sensibilities filtered through immense technical talent with democratic imagery common to a collective modern consciousness. His paintings provide us with fresh observations on the relationship of a contemporary audience towards historical painting.

Interested in transformative possibilities Dennis merges various movements throughout the western art historical canon with modern tropes in order to create fresh paintings rich with irony, hype and narrative where elements of art history intersect with pop culture.

By co-opting celebrated paintings of centuries past Dennis’ works find new meaning in the hallowed lineage of Old Master painting to explore contemporary questions of social interaction, artistic ownership, pictorial representation, and the consumption of images.
