I am a Australian artist who is interested in the banal, melancholic, the everyday.

The daily routines of urban life are so busy that people often do not pay attention to the details of these ‘ordinary’ elements and the patterns they create. The intense energy, colour and immensity of nature are sometimes expressed more poignantly within a painting than can be seen by the naked eye.

About

Dennis is an Australian artist working in the discipline of traditional oil painting and digital media.

My new series was inspired while in Japan it was there that I saw my paintings come to life as the entire country was awash in transmission towers and power poles. It was then no surprise that I observed another mass-produced structure beneath my feet; the Japanese utility lid. The Japanese see the value of art in something as lowly as a utility cover. While other nations mass-produce banal iron circles by the thousands, the Japanese create objects of art. Public art is crucial to keeping urban life vibrant and interesting, but outdoor space is too often reserved for advertising or covered in graffiti of dubious artistic merit. Japan, however, has capitalized on an unusual canvas for a unique genre of public art; the lowly utility cover.
