Dennis McNett: Skull and Roses

600.00

This piece is 12 inches by 12 inches on a carved wooden canvas and is a combination of three dimensional wood carving and painting.

McNett has over twenty years of experience specializing in woodcarving and wood block/relief printmaking. Using a V-notch chisel he creates rich surfaces and deep contours which have a living quality about them. While wood engraving itself has its roots in 2D applications, McNett transcends those limitations by using carved markings as the basis for relief prints which become collage materials. They are then used to bring to life grandiose, three-dimensional installations at museums, art centers, galleries, city streets and other diverse environments. Despite the scale, McNett always starts with patterns and lines and slowly builds upon them adding depth and complexity to his narratives.

Having shown internationally at spaces like The Victoria and Albert Museum in London and notable domestic spaces like the Jonathan LeVine Gallery and Joshua Liner Gallery in New York City, McNett has also contributed as a visiting artist/lecturer at Universities throughout the country in addition to receiving numerous residencies.

Heralded in the past by The New York Times, Houston Chronicle, NPR, Juxtapozand other notable outlets, Dennis McNett - like any good storyteller - has plenty of twists and turns planned for the future.
