Marc Dennis paints hyper-realistic and strikingly detailed paintings addressing notions of subversive desire, pleasure, and beauty. The artist lures us into the spectacle of subtly staged and slightly voyeuristic worlds of contemporary American culture. Interested in the transformative possibilities of familiar iconic images, such as guns, meat, jewelry, and assorted material possessions, Dennis explores the charged subjects of decadence, death, power, and sexuality.
