Marc Dennis

About Artist: Marc Dennis is an American artist known for his hyper-realistic and strikingly detailed paintings and drawings of subtly staged and slightly voyeuristic images of contemporary American culture. Interested in the transformative possibilities of familiar artistic tropes and iconic images, Dennis explores the charged subjects of beauty, pleasure, and power. With a nod to Caravaggio, Manet, and Magritte, the artist strives to saturate his work with truths and clichés about human behavior and the psychological, spiritual and physical relationships we form with “things.” Dennis’ work is witty, smart and slightly subversive, biting at the sanctity of art and life and sometimes coming away with a raw piece. “I set out to create works that are immediate and visceral; reflecting a paradox of dualities – the believable and non-believable, the real and the staged, and the serious and the comical, which I believe touches upon a genuine everyday urgency.” Born in 1969 in Danvers, Massachusetts, he holds a BFA from Tyler School of Art, and MFA from The University of Texas at Austin. His work is represented with Hasted Kraeutler Gallery in New York City and Zane Bennett Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, NM. His works have been included in numerous group and solo exhibitions in New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Houston. Marc was recently featured in the Arts & Culture Section of the February 2014 issue of TIME Magazine, and the December 2013 issue of Modern Painters “25 Artists To Watch.” His press includes Art News, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Forward, The Huffington Post, Jewish Week, The Chicago Tribune, Def Jam, and The Boston Globe, among others. Marc Dennis’ paintings and drawings are in numerous private and public international collections, including those of Glenn and Amanda Fuhrman, John and Amy Phelan, Beth DeWoody and Firooz Zahedi, David and Jennifer Stockman, Larry and Marilyn Fields, Sean and Tammy McCarthy, Bob and Cortney Novogrtatz, Michael Danoff and Jo Laird, Nancy and Richard Rogers, and The Neuberger Berman Collection, New York; The Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas at Austin; The Springfield Museum of Art, Ohio, and the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University, Palo Alto, California. Marc is also currently co-producing a six-channel video installation project on the Holocaust as well as a short film on the subject of clandestine art inside Nazi concentration camps.
