Marc Dennis
American, b. 1971
Follow

Marc Dennis is an American artist known for his hyper-realistic paintings of staged and slightly voyeuristic images of contemporary American culture, including individuals engaged in viewing iconic works of art. In his practice, he has also translated a childhood obsession with looking underneath rocks and logs into scientific renderings of fauna, often cast in dramatic Baroque light. His insects, morbidly preserved and pinned down in entomology cases, are painted with particular attention to their anatomies, exploring what Dennis calls the “subversive potential of beauty and pleasure.”
