Opera Gallery, New York announces Andy Denzler exhibition, Introspection

NEW YORK, NY.- Opera Gallery announced an exhibition by contemporary Swiss artist Andy Denzler, Introspection. The exhibition is on view across two floors of the gallery’s Madison Avenue flagship May 3 – 19, 2019. Introspection marks the first solo exhibition by Andy Denzler in New York since 2016.

“It is with pleasure that we present these new works by Andy, who we have championed for nearly 5 years,” states Opera Gallery founder Gilles Dyan. “His paintings are emotive and intimate while straddling the worlds of abstraction and figuration, his unique vision is haunting and sensual all at once.”

Bridging the figurative and abstract, Andy Denzler’s large-scale paintings belie a unique process of construction and deconstruction. Reminiscent of Old Master paintings, the works consider classical aesthetics through a fragmented contemporary lens that at once offers a unique temporality and a sublime dimension to the quotidian routines of his subjects, whereby the figurative and abstract are united in the artist’s neutral palette of flesh tones, ochres and browns. Beginning with these portrait-like still lifes in romantic hues, the artist uses a trowel to disrupt the composition: creating a tension in our perception of time and our viewpoint on the subject. Conveying a sense of distortion reminiscent of digital static, Denzler’s paintings seek to challenge the viewer’s perception of portraiture and narrative. Introspection invites the viewer into Denzler’s personal sphere—sharing intimate scenes of his inner circle of friends and creatives in the artist’s singular visual language.

Andy Denzler (b. 1965) lives and works in Zurich. He studied Fine Arts at the Kunstgewerbeschule and at the F&F Schule fr Gestaltung in Zurich, at the University of California Los Angeles and at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. In 2016, he received a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. His work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows across Europe, the United States and Asia, and in private and public institutions including the Guangju Museum of Art, Seoul (2012). He has had two important retrospectives to date: Distorted Moments at the Ludwig Museum in Kolbenz (2014) and Shifting Landscapes at the Kunsthalle in Dresden (2012). Denzler participated in the 6th International Art Biennale in Beijing (2015), and in the 6th Marrakech Biennale (2016). He was most recently exhibited at BRAFA, Brussels (2019). His work is in numerous public and private collections including the White House, Washington DC; the Denver Art Museum; the Museum of Modern Art, Moscow; Credit Suisse Collection; the Burger Collection, Hong Kong; and the David Roberts Art Foundation, London. A monograph was recently published by Damiani.
