PLEASE BE QUIET PLEASE.  paintings  by CHRIS DENNIS words by LAUREN CAPONE

APRIL 13 – MAY 18 2013

Reception, Saturday April 13th. 3-6pm (Reading by Lauren Capone at 4.30pm)

Please be quiet, please. (Named after Raymond Carver’s first short story collection) is Chris’ third solo show at Coup and sees a further distillation of his long standing preoccupations with surface and texture. His recognizable Therianthropes are still present, but are overpowered by forces flowing out and over these small panels against a backdrop of surprising colour.

In his own words: “There are a lot of things I don’t say, shouldn’t say. Things I don’t want to hear.

These are some of those things”.

 Adding another dimension to the show, Chris is delighted that New Orleans poet, Lauren Capone has agreed to provide a series of ‘responses’ to the work.  They will presented in the gallery alongside the paintings and included in a forthcoming publication.

 “Something squirms to loose itself of me,

a thing not to say, I wish I wouldn’t have said,

 mouths agape, as though telling.

Tell me:

 Conflagration

And the stuff enters a soul.”

 from “Symmetry of a Purge”
