Andy Denzler. The Human Nature Project I, 2010 Oil on canvas 140 x 120 cm.

The butdoesitfloat online curation/blog/tumblr recently featured Andy Denzler. I am completely struck by his work.

There is a fantastic duality to it. Starting with images that resemble holiday snaps he transmutes them into poorly received broadcasts. The oil strokes looking haphazard , causally daubed on the canvas, but it belies the accuracy and control to create the illusion. He paints disruption but underneath the image holds, the brushstrokes both portraying and destroying the illusion. There is something sinister too, surveillance, distress, found video footage after the act has been perpetrated.

    Interesting…not quite close enough to put “after Gerhard Richter” in the title, but close.
