Marc Dennis creates meticulously painted works that deal with the grand subjects of human life – beauty, death, and desire. In this work, a photo-realistic orchid faces the viewer, taking on an oddly human quality. The organic lines and patterns of the curvy stems and flowers behind it lead the eye around the canvas, creating a sensuous and beautiful composition. Dennis received his B.F.A. from Tyler School of Art and his M.F.A. from The University of Texas at Austin. His paintings are in numerous private and public collections and have been exhibited throughout the United States and worldwide.
