Andy Denzler combines a variety of media in his art practice, including painting, sculpture, and drawing. His works respond to traditional portrait painting through an expressive and multi-layered application of impasto oil paint and the subsequent removal thereof, resulting in the morphing of the image. He explains: “I’m using distortion and interference to depict surreal imagery, transience, and the influence of the media on today’s society. In this age of digital overstimulation, I am interested in people’s sensitivities and their search for their own identity. In both the form and content of my paintings, I take a conscious stand against today’s artificial, fleeting imagery, away from perfectionism and high-gloss aesthetics….” Just like in one of Luis Buñuel’s surrealistic films, Denzler transfers his scenes to deserted places, rooms caught between dream and reality. As if watching a VHS movie, the observer’s attention is directed to the architecture of the room, the figures, the interior, the incidence of light, and the depth of field. Yet the scenes have no outcome, like puzzles deliberately left unsolved. 'Fragmented Identity' examines Denzler’s works from the past seven years: interiors, zone paintings, photo frame paintings, portraits and works on paper.
