And in this corner, we have the heavyweight fighter of paint slinging… Marc Dennis. Dennis is a champion in the realm of hyperrealistic painting, duking it out every day in the studio apply a rigorous work ethic that produces mind bending detail and realism that goes beyond representation into the superreal. His floral still life paintings are a vivid homage to the Dutch still life painters of the 17th century and speak to the abundance of our era. His appropriation of master painter’s works are both reverential and yet totally accessible to the common man through a jocular sense of humor. It’s pastiche and parody all rolled into one. Marc expounds on the powers of observation and his rough and tumble journey that led him to become the meticulous and highly successful artist he is today.
