Exhibition: Denise Eno Ernest
Denise Eno Ernest creates highly abstract, dimensional works using several distinct techniques. By either building actual three dimensional shapes that attach to her paintings or by using mixed media to create a three dimensional landscape to her work, she creates visual and tactile paintings in a language all her own. Recently Denise has begun a series of paintings using silk scarves, along with the application of acrylic and metallic paint in varying thicknesses. The juxtaposition of the paint to the delicacy and eroticism of the silk scarves creates both tension and vulnerability in the work. The visual balance of Denise's painting is inspired by the use of light and dark in early Flemish art. Curves, diagonals and folds push against the hardness of the straight line emphasizing the sensuality of the feminine erotic.
