Presentation
“Men are trainee angels. »- Victor Hugo Angels, men, beliefs, fears, hopes and realities, intersect and intertwine in the universe of Guy Denning, an English artist who has offered France his talent for more than a decade. Guy Denning is a concentrate of paradox: a skin-deep sensitivity behind a punk look, figures screaming with pain or rage, gaping mouths which we do not know if they are about to smile or exult, but also gentleness, and a lot of humanity. The artist's attraction for humans and their bodies, far from the tradition of the "beautiful ideal", pushes him to seek uniqueness, the charm of an angular shoulder and the rendering of each skin, sensuality. of a movement or a singular posture. Guy Denning loves his subjects as much as the image he gives of them and the very act of representing them; its primary goal is the creation of a form of sensory relation and with matter, and with the result. He creates for him, to feel alive and shudder in front of his charcoal and acrylic characters. And above all, he creates to make his audience feel the life that escapes from canvas, paper or the wall. Guy Denning's interest in art and the deep conviction that there lay his destiny are almost as old as his political commitment, very early forged by the vision of a post-industrial English society in decline. However, no bitterness can be seen in the works of Guy Denning, who is deeply convinced that man, in a burst of lucidity, will become aware of his vulnerability to nature, his own and that which he has led to decline. His angels are ultimately only projections of men who observe, cry, hope and save. Androgynous bodies (in which the artist gives a certain interest), winged, which call out to their terrestrial companions: them, the subjects, the two-dimensional characters, and us, who inspire them. Guy Denning's work draws on various sources, the news and its socio-political meanders remaining inexhaustible. Thus, armed with a brush, a tale, a bouquet of pastels and glued words, the artist brings to light the pangs of climate change, forced exodus, the blindness of a a society which too often forgets that behind each minority, each claim, each confinement or each revolt, there is a concealment of hearts that beat, hope and love. “We have suffered too much, angels and men, from this conflict between the Worst and the Best. »Paul Verlaine We are happy to be able to present again the exceptional work of Guy Denning who, more than ever, by his dreaminess, his metaphorical alerts, his oscillations between darkness and light, reminds us that the future exists and depends only on we.
