Erotica // Monday, June 24, 2013
Swiss artist Andy Denzler combines a variety of mediums in his art practice, including painting, printing, graphic design, sculpture, and drawing. His works move between abstraction and reality, using the classical applications of oil painting to broach the shifting lines between fiction and reality. Denzler's pieces are snap-shots of events that take place in the span of mere moments, blurred and distorted in their movements, their timeframe artificially smeared and elongated into frozen eternities like the oscillating frames of a VHS tape hovering on pause.

Andy Denzler has taken the long since dead medium of video tape and injected it with a shot of creativity and imagination. Heavily influenced by Andy Warhol's screen tests of the 1960‘s and Julian Schnabel's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Hovering and shifting constantly between abstraction and figuration, his work reinterprets the way both painting and video can be brought together.

Andy Denzler, if he was attempting to create a series that matched the feeling of an improbable dream, then he was very successful. These paitings appear to be blips in the imagination, static on a television screen, blurred visions of ones past, all done with oils on canvas. Denzler says that he tries evoking a narrative through composition, light, and motion.
