Andy Denzler’s is using his paintings to hit the VHS pause button. His oil works display an abstract nature that seeps through the realism he creates, allowing otherwise detailed creations to come across as slight distortions. He manages to put together a haze, a fog placed in front of classic art.
This pause button does not stop time. Interestingly, it creates a subtle motion which is not achieved with the work behind the fog. I see a woman about to lie down, perhaps to stand up. Her head is shifting, right shoulder crossing in front of her chin, clothes swaying with the movement. This is truly a waypoint between still shots and motion capture.
