More beautiful work has been unveiled by Swiss artist Andy Denzler. The Painter's Room is a new series of paintings, following his signature style of blurred lines with a now-you-see-it, now-you-don't type narrative. The boldly striped works are created with horizontal scrapes made by a spatula dragged across the still-wet canvas, as though a video has been permanently paused, capturing the present in a single transient, but captive, moment.
"I bring time and motion into the imagery, by using both time and motion. It’s an alla prima technique, painting wet-on-wet; I control the speed of the painting process, because there is a limited amount of time before the canvas dries," Denzler explains. "It's a very radical process."
Using photographs that he's taken with his Leica camera as a reference only, Denzler paints freehand to build layer upon layer of wet paint, before scraping the blurred lines across each artwork. The result is a collection of haunting abstract works, that leaves us wondering – what's happened before and what will happen next?
