Andy Denzler

Andy Denzler  was born in Zurich where he currently lives and works. He obtained a Master of Fine Arts degree at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London in 2006.

 

Denzler has created a signature style encompassing bands of pigment that alternate between static, thick marks and blurred, flowing sweeps. The human figure remains at the core of his explorations, courting the viewer's memories, and leaving him with a vague gnawing that he has missed something lying just beneath the surface. Perception and distortion are prominent and powerful traits of Denzler's studio practice.

 

His work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in Europe, the United States and Asia in private and public institutions such as the Gwangju Museum of Art in South Korea. He has had two important retrospectives: at the Ludwig Museum in Koblenz. In 2015, he was exhibited at the Art biennale in Beijing, in 2016 at the art biennale Marrakech and more recently at the KunstForum in Wien. His work is part of many prestigious private and public collections such as the White House in Washington DC, the Museum of Modern Art in Moscow, the Denver Art Museum, Credit Suisse, the Burger Collection in Hong Kong and the David Roberts Art Foundation in London. A monography was recently published by Damiani.
