Dene Leigh

Dene Leigh

United Kingdom • Born in: 1989

Travel Souvenirs

Painters

British artists

Dene Leigh's highly layered trompe d'oeil compositions represent the most poignant and mysterious of voyages into personal memory. Apart from the cathartic release of working around such a profoundly personal subject, the richness of the constructions of each individual work enables the artist to take on this eighteenth century painterly tradition without paling into insignificance when confronted with his peers from the past. Refreshingly, his references, which are clearly contemporary, enable him to give new life to this tradition. Inside his canvases we discover the many unfolding references to memory, which result in one taking on the role of detective as we try and interpret the work's complex meaning. However, aside from the richness of the composition, the paintings are beautifully executed; the colour is rich and the line sure.
