Painter Matthew Dennison


Painter Matthew Dennison’s work combines figures and environments in unexpected ways - such as a bear on the Bonneville Dam, or a narwhal confronting a family in a ski boat – to re-jigger assumptions about where animals belong in our ever more human-dominated world. His bright colors and blocky, naive shapes make the paintings approachable while grappling with real-life events, frequently drawn from Matthew’s obsession with world news and intuition that everything is connected.
