Dennis Hartley: Painter, Oregon

Poplars

American painter Dennis Hartley is represented by fine art galleries from coast to coast. Originally an architect, he has spent twenty-five years in design related fields in Europe and the U.S.

Through the Veil Painting

Artist Statement: One of my ongoing subjects for representation is the barn in the landscape, which for me represents the larger issue of the relationship of man and nature, the overriding theme of ancient Chinese painting. To me, these slowly aging icons of humble purpose possess a certain noble and monumental quality that transcends a sentimental viewpoint. I find that these ‘non-styled’ structures of pure utility can be used as a neutral and malleable motif to explore various painterly themes and ideas of form, space, transparency, and duality.
