"Lights out #5" by Denholm Berry, Acrylic on Black Paper
32 x 24
Acrylic on Black Paper
B. 1979 Milan-based British artist Denholm Berry approaches portraiture with an innovative and unconventional methodology. Blending psychological spaces with expressive physicality, the figures presented in the works are at once anonymous and inviting – emotions and identities are open to the viewer’s interpretation. “My hope is that, by filtering concepts in this unusual way, my obscured portraits will become paradoxically revealing.” Denholm’s unique artworks have been included in many Saatchi Art collections and have proven popular with international collectors – most notably in the USA where his pieces are collected extensively. Featured regularly on major Instagram feeds, his artworks have been viewed by millions of people online.
