About The Modern Wild

In the early years of the 21st Century, amidst growing interest in wildlife generated by a greater need for conservation than ever before, popular interest in wildlife art continues to broaden, and with it, a new trend is emerging: a movement away from the literal, illustrative style which typified so much of the 20th Century, towards a more interpretive, contemporary approach. Andrew Denman is at the leading edge of this evolution. His unique combination of hyperrealism with stylization and abstraction imbues his work with a strongly contemporary flavor that immediately distinguishes him from his peers. Over the last ten years, he has emerged as one of the most original voices in his field, a position solidified with awards, honors, and aquisitions by private collectors and museums alike.

"Andrew Denman: The Modern Wild" is the first ever solo museum exhibition of the artist's work. Thirty-five original paintings as well as preparatory studies, drawings, and photographs, will showcase Denman's artistic evolution and art-making process. Visitors to this exhibition will find themselves captivated, challenged, and informed by images that push the boundaries of the wildlife art genre. A poet as well as a painter, Denman uses nature's innumerable inspirations not as a template for illustrative mimicry, but as a springboard for metaphore seldom seen in animal art.

David J. Wagner, Ph.D., author of American Wildlife Art and curator of such notable traveling museum exhibitions as "The Art of Robert Bateman," "Biodiversity in the Art of Carel Pieter Brest van Kempen," and "Kent Ulberg: A Retrospective," now enters the next chapter in his scholarly exegesis of this fascinating genre with "Andrew Denman: The Modern Wild." Both Dr. Wagner and Andrew Denman are excited to bring this collection of the artist's work into the public eye.
