The latest San Francisco Bay Area gallery to open under the ownership and direction of John Denning and Brigitte Micmacker, co-owners of a new leaf gallery | sculpturesite, also located at Cornerstone Sonoma and formerly of Berkeley and San Francisco.
John Denning, a Bay Area figurative artist originally known for his abstracted watercolors in vibrant colors, has also become a sought after bronze artist. His mastery of the three-dimensional medium can be traced to his early interest in clay sculpting, while his background as a painter is evident in the rich patina on the expressive figures.
Building on these two mediums, Denning has now developed a fresh body of work, incorporating elements of both two and three-dimensional work to create captivating and timely archival digital prints on aluminum, paper and silk. Here, Denning further abstracts the figure and achieves an eerie sense of motion. In these haunting collaged compositions, the artist uses menacing birds or dogs, or fragments of human figures in shadowy silhouettes.
