Throughout the years, artist Denny Caruso has produced some of the most beautiful images in the world. His work has been featured in magazines such as Vogue, Elle and the New York Times, and his paintings can be seen in private collections across the country. Recently, Caruso joined forces with artist Robyn Denny to create a new collaboration. Their work is a perfect example of how art and nature can work together.
LOOP Art Fair has selected British artist Robyn Denny’s work to showcase at its Barcelona exhibition. The artist is known for his visceral, compelling installations. His work is inspired by historical and colonial subjects, with tension arcs ranging from colonial trauma to contemporary renewal.
In addition to his painting, Denny also has a career as a video artist. His film HATCHED (2015) is a backdrop for a live performance by Mamela Nyamza. In his solo exhibition at Berman Contemporary, Denny had a multi-paneled film, featuring Nyamza’s dance performance, displayed on the floor of the gallery. His paintings have also been selected for AKAA Art Fair Paris in 2017. He has exhibited his paintings throughout the United States and Europe. In addition, his artwork has been included in the prestigious Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, CA.
In his most recent exhibition, Denny travelled to the island of Sao Tome and Principe. His work is inspired by his experiences there. His paintings feature bold marks of American Abstract Expressionism, which are reminiscent of the French Tachisme movement. His paintings are also indebted to popular culture and American films. He is represented by Berman Contemporary in New York and London. Among his many accomplishments, Denny was the youngest artist ever to receive a retrospective at the Tate in 1973. He has also exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
During the mid-1950s, Robyn Denny was a radical student at the Royal College of Art in London. He exhibited in avant-garde spaces in London and abroad. His work was held by the Tate Gallery and the New York Museum of Modern Art. He became a champion of urban abstract art. In the 1970s, his work was published in a series of 24 abstract etchings, titled Generations. These prints combine rigid architectural structure with a harmonious colour arrangement. Their soft-ground etching lines are outlined with an acrylic wash. This wash adds layers of colour, luminosity, and rich surfaces. The etchings are printed by JC Editions.
