I know I'm just one stupid guy standing on a ramshackle internet soap box...but I wan't to make an observation if I may. Work like the above painting should be evidence to anyone with eyes that Dennis Hollingsworth's output has reached a critical mass and it is only a matter of time before we should put on the welders glasses to shield our eyes from the impending retinal damaging flash. Recently I've begun to notice with more and more vividness, a finely attenuated and sophisticated phrasing, an increasingly extended and inventive range, and an ambitious scale within this artists work that has vaulted the paintings to a completely new level. Dennis has been working for years slowly exploring the vast depths he has chosen to plumb, and it is only with time that this accumulation of hard fought experience has lead to the type of poetic richness that recent paintings display with such staggering authority. Smart and Plucky Los Angeles Museum Curators would be wise to contact Dennis while the hour is nigh'..I think that we're on the verge of something big here people. As a side note...the idea of working with such commitment, dedication, unwavering vision, and dogged determination are the type of values that this blog seeks to perennially disperse. Dennis is the posterchild for this type of kickass authenticity..
Big sincere ups...!
