Andy Denzler weaves nostalgic photorealism with gestural expression in his wholly original style of painting. He achieves the look of his works—at once a paused film still and a sweeping abstraction—by alternating bands of unmoving, impastoed detail with flowing horizontal sweeps of his brush. The result is works like Returning Native (2010) that somehow suggest vigorous action at a frozen moment in time. “I’m principally concerned with addressing time and evoking a narrative through composition, light, and motion,” he says. “I depict time by applying a filter of blurred movement.”
