Guy Denning Exhibition

Guy Denning presents The Politics of Painting

Guy Denning (born 1965) is a self taught English contemporary artist and painter based in France. He is the founder of the Neomodern group and part of the urban art scene in Bristol. Guy Denning says he had been interested in art since he was a small child and is a self-taught painter. He applied to study at several art colleges during the 1980s but was refused entry. His paintings have been shown in many solo and mixed exhibitions. Notable solo shows include ‘Purgatorio’ at Brooklynite, New York; ‘Inferno’ at MAGI’900, Bologna and ‘Behemoth’ at St Martin in the Fields, London. His work is held in several important public collections, including the Politics Department of Bristol University, the Political Science Department at Galway University and the MAGI’900 Museum of Contemporary Art, Bologna.

This is the largest show of work that the artist has put together; there are eighty pieces dating back to the 1970’s to try to give an indication of how his work has changed over time. The main underlying theme though exhibition is the presence of politics in the artists work.
