English contemporary artist and painter based in France. He is the founder of the Neomodern group, a member of Stuckism International, and part of the urban art scene in Bristol. He works from observation.
He was born in France. From 1992, he has exhibited across Britain. In 1997, he founded the neomodern group. In 2004, he founded the Bristol Stuckists group. His work appeared in the Triumph of Stuckism exhibition at Liverpool John Moores University as part of the 2006 Liverpool Biennial. The show was curated by Naive John. In 2007, he joined Red Propeller (an internet based urban art gallery).
Denning's early work included an interest in the work of Franz Kline and was characterised by powerful, expressive brushstrokes. More recently he has combined earlier influences with an increasingly figurative style of painting. The human figure features strongly in his latest work and he uses this subject matter to convey powerful emotions, often with political overtones. The Icarus series of works is an example of this approach. Structurally his work is very dynamic showing a concern for strong draughtsmanship with a spontaneous application of colour. He does not work to set motifs, but makes paintings and drawings from observation.
