Leading the Way for Yourself

Andy Denzler exhibition highlights the constant search of finding yourself in the series Between Here and There. Motions can be seen in his artwork, yet gentle horizontal brush sweeps provide them with stillness necessary for the mind to capture them and be lost in the thinking. Modern day lifestyle, everyday questioning in front of the transitioning background are featured in his art. Andy Denzler saw the decaying past, bright hope for future and the struggle in the present which promises much potential. Using his personal history, Andy Denzler could relate to young creative people in his paintings and sculptures that were used as prime figures. He uses modern day technology with old camera photos to bring out the abstract of his artwork. While looking at his paintings there is never a dull sensation, Denzler’s play with the colors brings the transparency of time to the full effect. His main source are the photos he takes earlier and then through selection and hard work there is a feeling that his paintings come to life. With careful blurring, his paintings have the sensation of a ghostly look; playing with the visual sense of the viewer’s eye anyone can start the journey through time with them.

Fast-Paced Environment

Buildings serve as a narrative and perfect background which invites anyone to travel through time with the main story in front of them. In a modern fast-paced world there is a feeling that the environment follows us everywhere, Andy Denzler captures it and gives it a meaning of rapid change that stays with the artist and his work. Searching yourself in this modern world is not easy and Andy Denzler’s paintings and sculptures truly captivate that.
